The Corvinus University of Budapest is the only Hungarian higher education institution to be included in the prestigious Eastern European business school ranking of Eduniversal. The university has been on the podium for the fourth year in a row, this year being the second best of 86 schools in 21 countries.
Each year, the French Eduniversal network compiles a ranking of the world’s higher education institutions of business studies, intending to guide those interested in studying business when choosing a university. The organization selects the best-known thousands of institutions from all business schools worldwide and ranks them by nine geographical regions: Africa, Central Asia, Eurasia and the Middle East, Far East, Latin America, North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe and Oceania.
Eduniversal uses a dual methodology to compile its annual rankings. The evaluation is based on the votes of the deans of the thousands of institutions participating in the survey, supplemented by the results of Eduniversal’s internal evaluation system. In addition to the evaluation of scientific work, the place in the ranking also highlights the university’s international reputation.
For the fourth year in a row, Corvinus University of Budapest has been on the podium in the Eastern European ranking of Eduniversal.
This year, it ranked second among 86 business schools in 21 countries. This year, Prague University of Economics and Business finished first, while the third place is shared by the University of Warsaw – Faculty of Management and the University of Ljubljana – School of Economics and Business.
In addition to its excellent position in the Eastern European rankings, Corvinus University of Budapest retained its four-palm rankings this year as well. This also means that as the holder of the Palms of Excellence Award with four palm rankings, i.e. with an outstanding number of dean votes, the Corvinus University of Budapest managed to stay in the elite club of the 200 best business schools in the Eduniversal network this year, too.
The Palms of Excellence Awards was one of the highlights of the international organization’s one-week World Congress, which due to the pandemic situation was held this year online, with unique and forward-looking virtual solutions.
The Corvinus University of Budapest is Hungary’s leading university in the field of economic and social science studies.
The medium-term goal of the renewed BCE, which as of July 1 2019, became a private university controlled by a foundation, is to become the best higher education institution in the mentioned fields not only nationally, but also in Central and Eastern Europe. As part of the University’s Renewal Program, launched in 2019, significant developments have begun in both academic and institutional operations aimed at strengthening BCE’s position on the international stage, with particular reference to the emergence of internationally outstanding research results.
Nearly 12,000 students, including 3,500 foreign students, are currently studying at the Corvinus University campuses in Budapest and Székesfehérvár.
The institution maintains close relationships with 300 partner universities worldwide. The strengths of Corvinus’ training are its practice-oriented approach, active market relationships, and its performance-based Corvinus Scholarship Scheme, which encourages students to produce outstanding results. BCE regularly achieves a prominent position in the international higher education rankings, becoming the first in the region’s Eduniversal ranking in 2019 with its Business Administration and Management course, and with its Masters course in Management and Leadership, in 2020 it was included in the Financial Times Masters in Management ranking as one of the 100 best business schools in Europe. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the University operates more than 20 internationally recognized research centers, and its doctoral schools cover 7 educational areas. Currently, a significant part of Hungary’s economic, political and academic elite is a graduate of Corvinus, but an important goal of the University’s Renewal Program is to provide its students with a degree and knowledge that can be used in the international labor market by providing more and more high-quality English language training.
