Corvinus University of Budapest is a leading university in business and social sciences in the Central-Eastern European region.

Our master’s degree in Management and Leadership is ranked among the Financial Times’ best master’s in management programs.

Our vision is to become a leading university in business and social sciences in the Central European region.
