Faculty and Research
CEU Business School’s faculty is nearly as diverse as its student body. Currently, we host lecturers from 11 countries on 3 continents. Reflecting CEU Business School’s dual commitment to both excellent academic research and practically relevant management education, our faculty consists of both academicians involved in leading-edge research and practitioners with many years of in-depth industry experience, most of whom are adjunct lecturers who are out in the field every day and are thus able to bring the latest developments in business into the classroom.
