From this September, Széchenyi István University offers 35 programmes in English for its Hungarian and international students, including the newly launched Master of Business Administration (MBA) as well. The 2-year-long programme is the first MBA programme in English in Hungary that is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the most prominent global accrediting body for business schools.
Barnabás Virág, the Deputy Governor of Hungarian National Bank said that that there are more than 16 000 MBA programmes in the world, of which only 5 per cent have received the accreditation of the prestigious association. In Central Europe, Széchenyi István University is the only institution who earned it.
The programme allows students to register at both universities and earn a degree issued at each institution. Upon successful completion, students can receive both an Executive MBA degree at Széchenyi István University and a Master of Business Administration at the University of Rhode Island at the same time. The fully online programme is taught by American instructors as well.
Dr Eszter Lukács, the Vice-Rector for Educational Affairs at Széchenyi István University also emphasized the significance of the newly launched programme and said that it is an outstanding opportunity for all professionals who want to work in management to acquire state-of-the-art American knowledge here in Hungary.
