CEU (Hungary)vs Tias (the Netherlands)


Hui Ting

Hello, everyone!

I got admitted by Tias (the Netherlands) and CEU (Hungary) for MBA program, both of them granted me scholarship, which reduced the final tuition fee to EUR12500 and EUR6500 respectively. Tias is accredited by AMBA and AACSB, while CEU is only AMBA-accredited.

Here about myself: I'm from Taiwan, 26 years old. I've worked as regional sales manager of CIS countries for 3.5 years and would like to start my own business (social enterprise, in Taiwan) after graduation.

According to rankings and accreditation, Tias seems to be a better choice. I don't speak neither Dutch nor Hungarian, but I know the Netherlands will be easier to live. However, the total cost (tuition fee+ living cost) will be higher than that of CEU by EUR7000. Since I have limited budget, it's very hard for me to make final decision..
Both of them provide very interesting curriculum and opportunity, for example, Tias offers 3-month management project in local company and CEU provides 1-month New York City study trip without additional cost.

Could anyone give me some suggestion? Thanks in advance!

Personally, I would pick CEU. It is an MBA which is very strong for social business, and for entrepreneurship (those are two of its three concentrations). Economically, Hungary is close to Taiwan than The Netherlands is, and I think there might be more for you to learn there.

If you want to come to work in Europe, then Tias would be the better choice. I can't see any reason to take on more debt for a course that is more focussed on corporate leadership than on social entrepreneurship.

Hello, Suvoram!

I finally chose CEU and will start my MBA in Budapest since this September! :) The advice from Duncan is very useful and thoughtful, the curriculum provided by CEU is more closely linked to my future goal (social entrepreneur).

Duncan, sorry for my late reply, thanks a lot for your response and advice! :)
