Hungarian Accredited Degrees

Central European University offers degrees that are accredited in Hungary and/or the US, thus ensuring that its students may obtain degrees acknowledged in the member states of the European Union depending on their enrollment in CEU’s different entities. 

The “CEU, New York” entity is a US accredited institution with a teaching site in Budapest. This entity is not accredited in Hungary but its operational license is certified in Hungary by the Educational Authority. Students graduating from one of the “CEU, New York” programs obtain US degrees.

The “CEU, Budapest” entity is a Hungarian accredited institution that offers degrees accredited in Hungary. Students graduating from one of the “CEU, Budapest” programs obtain Hungarian degrees.

Students who complete both the Hungarian and the American accreditation requirements in a program that has dual accreditation may obtain two diplomas.

The Office of the Pro-Rector for Hungarian and EU Affairs is in charge of Hungarian accreditation related matters.

The degree programs listed below are accredited by the Hungarian Accreditation Committee and registered by the Educational Authority. Currently these are the only programs offered at CEU that have Hungarian accreditation.
