CEU Rejects Prime Minister of Hungary's False Accusations

March 31, 2017

Budapest, March 31, 2017 – Central European University (CEU) utterly rejects the Prime Minister of Hungary's false allegations that CEU is “cheating.” Contrary to the Prime Minister's statement, there is no current Hungarian law that requires universities to have operations in their home countries in order to award degrees in Hungary. CEU is accredited to award Hungarian and U.S. degrees. We have been lawful partners in Hungarian higher education for 25 years and any statement to the contrary is false. We also note, in contrast to the Prime Minister's statement, we are registered officially under the names Central European University and Közép-európai Egyetem.
