Hungarian Partnerships

For CEU, partnerships with other universities are an essential part of our open society mission. CEU partners with institutions and universities across the globe, offering opportunities for our students, faculty and researchers to benefit from and contribute to the development of new knowledge in a wide variety of fields. Partnerships with Hungarian institutions are of particular importance to CEU, which has called Budapest home for more than two decades.

  • finance related PhD students have committee members from Corvinus

Plans are drawn up to hold a finance research day for faculty and students to present their work to each other.


  • CEU Department of Economics receives a grant from the CERGE-EI Foundation. The CERGE‐EI Teaching Fellowship program is aimed toward improving undergraduate economics education in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Under this umbrella, CEU is sending mostly MA and PhD students to teach at other universities. This helps Hungarian universities to relieve their budget constraints by teaching undergraduate, mostly core subjects. For the first time this year we are sending three fellows to Corvinus.
  • Prof. Gábor Kézdi was also on the PhD committee of four PhD students at Corvinus.
  • Prof. Robert Lieli frequently discusses papers at the annual conference organized by the doctoral school at Corvinus, as sort of a public service. And we have already invited Faculty from Corvinus to serve on the deissertationand MA thesis Committees at the department as external members.
