I was looking for a one-year MBA program with an intense dive into the latest business practices on the one hand and an international perspective on the other. The Business School of Central European University serves both expectations very well: One, it keeps a strong cultural diversity in the class. Two, the unique Transnational Leadership Program familiarizes students with Anglo-Saxon and North American business practices as well as allowing them to specialize in an emerging region of their choice: China, Central-Eastern Europe, or North Africa and the Middle East.
Classes are very interactive and stimulating. Some assignments involve interaction with real companies; group preparation and reality simulating games help to project the knowledge into real life scenarios. I have a great time with professional, energetic and devoted people from all over the world in the class. I gain knowledge in many different fields of business in different regions of the world opening myself for new ideas and directions for development. I become aware of the latest challenges and trends in business and make useful connections inside as well as outside of the school during various networking events organized by the school.

I chose the CEU Full Time MBA program because it offered a perfect storm of value from a number of aspects. The 1-year program answered my needs for a fast-paced and intense experience that ensured I’d be using my new skill set quickly. The US accredited curriculum has provided a solid theoretical foundation that compliments and bolsters my practical experience. I’ve been able to broaden my perspective on critical global issues both in the classroom and through new relationships I’ve developed with my classmates. And, perhaps most importantly, CEU’s focus on transnational leadership dovetails with my career in international development and will only serve to strengthen my offering to future clients around the world.

The MBA program at CEU Business School gives an opportunity to prepare for changes which will face business during nearest years. The post crisis world is going through fast changes where emerging markets play more and more important role. Knowledge of transnational business context becomes of crucial importance for modern business. I am sure that to response all these changes it is not enough to be specialist in a certain area. During one year of education I have studied and worked on many projects with truly special people. Interactive methods of education gave me an opportunity to apply newly received knowledge for making business decisions. I think that this school gives all necessary knowledge to face changes in modern business environment.
