Corvinus renews its unrivalled international accreditation in Hungary for 5 more years

Corvinus University of Budapest has once again been awarded the AMBA accreditation, the most prestigious international recognition in the field of postgraduate business education. This achievement enables Corvinus to maintain its position among the top 2% of the world's business schools, standing as the sole Hungarian university in the category of MBA programmes.

With the renewed accreditation Corvinus University not only reaffirmed the recognition received in 2020 but also secured an extension for an additional 5 years, surpassing the previous 3-year duration. With a history spanning over fifty years, AMBA, the Association of MBAs is one of the world’s leading authorities on postgraduate business education. AMBA-accredited members include institutions such as Leeds University Business School in the UK, WU Executive Academy in Vienna, HEC Paris in France, University of Sydney Business School in Australia and the Prague University of Economics and Business. Until now, only about 300 schools worldwide have gained acknowledgement from the organization, and Corvinus holds the unique position of being the only recognized institution in Hungary.

“Obtaining this re-accreditation validates that our MBA Programs meet the highest academic standards and prove that our candidates experience robust and superior programs designed to create a significant impact in our ever-changing world. We take great pride that our MBA students are empowered to lead and make a difference in Hungary, our region and beyond,” said Patrick Bohl, Dean of Postgraduate and Executive Programmes at Corvinus University.

The AMBA accreditation panel members, comprised of senior executives from world-renowned business schools, highlighted Corvinus’ strong research culture and profile, believed by the panel to provide a solid foundation for MBA curricula and teaching. The panel also noted that the University has attracted exceptional MBA students and commended the future development of the Ménesi Campus to accommodate MBA programs as an exciting step, highlighting Corvinus’ ambition and commitment to sustained growth.
