Hi! Has anyone have had experience from EMBA at CEU? Is it recommendable?
Will it have an impact?
CEU Executive MBA
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.
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.
