The Executive MBA Program, “International Masters in Management” is a joint effort of 4 premier Business Schools: Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, Tilburg University’s Tias Business School, GISMA Business School, Germany and CEU Business School. It has just recently been ranked # 11 in the world by the Financial Times in their world-wide survey of Executive MBAs. FT also ranked the program #1 in the world in “international course experience”. This integrated, part-time Executive MBA, which begins each year in February, is for experienced professionals who seek to obtain their degree while maintaining their full-time job responsibilities. Rotating on-campus instructional time is focused into six twoweek residential sessions over the 2 years.


CEU Business School offers an exceptional opportunity to earn an American MBA in the heart of Europe. The ONE-YEAR, full-time program begins each year in September. A rigorous, participative curriculum is taught by prominent international faculty with roots and experience in Central-Eastern Europe. Influential senior executives from many of the largest multi-national corporations prepare students to rise to the challenges of the local transforming economies through guest lectures, mentorships, and real-world consulting projects. A multicultural student body is given the opportunity to further enhance this diversity through exchanges with the School’s prestigious partner institutions in Europe and North America.


The modular WEEKEND MBA, the same high quality American degree as the full-time program, can also be earned on a part-time basis, with no career interruption. The Weekend program starts in January each year, with classes running intensively from Friday afternoon until Sunday noon, every third weekend.
