December 10, 2011
Budapest, Hungary – For the second consecutive year regional and international employers rated Central European University Business School the top business school in Central Europe (including Germany and Austria), according to recent results of the QS Global 200 Business School Report 2012. The school also jumped from 22 to the number 13 position for Europe overall.
Commenting on these new findings, Professor Mel Horwitch, Dean of CEU Business School, stated, "We are honored by this continued demonstration of strong support from key firms in our region and globally and by this recognition as one of the very top business schools in Europe. These recent findings from such a respected organization as QS TOPMBA.com are particularly gratifying since we are committed to continuous innovation at our school. We do not try to be all things to all people. Instead, we select what we think are the high-priority arenas and challenges that are important for our students and our business partners, not just today but in the coming decade. We then design and offer programs and other learning opportunities that are powerful and sophisticated.”
