It all depends on your goals. The CEU is a very complex project. Broadly speaking, the MBA has not flourished since the IMC business school became part of the CEU. WU is a more practical choice.

For what goals would the CEU MBA fit? And what do you mean with flourished?

My purpose ist to get knowledge in business administration since I am working the media area and am an expert in journalism but lack this education to move on to more strategic leadership roles.


thank you!

CEU gives you the core MBA curriculum and a cohort centered on Vienna and Budapest with a common reference point in the Soros/CEU ideas of an Open Society. However, you'd get the same academic core from the Diplom Betreibswirt at the WU, at a fraction of the cost. 

By not flourishing, I mean that the IMC (as the business school was then called) was set up with huge support in the mid-1990s with a partnership through that decade delivering a two-year MBA from a top US university (CWRU). When the partnership wrapped up in 2003, with IMC joining the CEU, it was able to stand on its own feet with a strong (by regional standards), viable, MBA and MSc portfolio. CEU is a strong academic partner, but clearly the Hungarian government has given it a beating. I think the CEU is a bit of a touchy brand if you are going business in Hungary right now.
