In order to increase the competitiveness and catching-up of the Central-Eastern European region, Corvinus University and SEED Business School are committed to strengthening their already existing cooperation in business education.
The two institutions have now signed an agreement that focuses is primarily the further development of executive education and non-degree programs and the enhanced professional collaboration among their leaders, scholars, experts.
Corvinus University of Budapest – as the pioneering institution of the new model – became a private university as of 1 July 2019. The vision of the renewal of Corvinus is to become the leading institution in Central Europe in economic and social sciences in the international higher education rankings by 2030 and to lead the development of a responsible economic and social elite, that can perform among the best in the world.
SEED Business School was founded based on the strong belief that world class business education is not the sole privilege of prestigious US and Western European institutions. The school’s aim is to offer an attractive alternative to the talented leaders and managers of the region, and to professionals coming from other parts of the world by providing world class business education with a regional focus and integrating international best practices. Through keeping and attracting this intellectual capital, enabling them to build their careers and professional network locally, SEED’s main mission is to contribute to the development of regional competitiveness.
Since the Fall of 2019, the two institutions jointly offer the Corvinus-MSM-SEED Executive MBA Program, which is an international double degree program in cooperation with the Maastricht School of Management.
With this new agreement, the two institutions are expanding their cooperation and are committed to developing new executive education and non-degree programs, enhancing professional collaboration among the leaders, scholars and experts of the parties, contributing to earning and keeping the international accreditations, strengthening their partner relations, harmonizing the recruitment and communication activities.
The strategic cooperation agreement was signed by Péter Fehér, Dean of Postgraduate and Executive Programs, Dr. Lajos György Szabó, Vice-Rector for Education at Corvinus University and András Kárpáty, Chief Executive Officer of SEED Business School.
