The Budapest Corvinus University and Shanghai’s Fudan University are launching a joint MBA programme.
The announcement was made at an event held in Budapest on Friday in preparation for the Shanghai Forum 2019 conference.
National Bank of Hungary governor György Matolcsy said the programme aimed to produce talented and highly skilled professionals. He said the scheme was a part of Hungary’s support for China’s Belt and Road initiative aimed at creating a new “Silk Road” of trade links between China and Europe.
Hungary and the central and eastern European region “form a bridge” between Europe and China, Matolcsy said. The region has already proven itself as the European Union’s “small but well-functioning engine of growth” in recent years, he added.
The leaders of Hungary’s central bank, Corvinus University and Fudan University signed a trilateral agreement at the event.
