CEU received the Hungarian Construction Industry’s Award for Excellence on March 27 in a ceremony at the University's Nador 13 and Nador 15 buildings.
"When I first entered these buildings as the new rector of CEU, I said 'wow!' remarked President and Rector Michael Ignatieff at the award ceremony. "And I still say 'wow.'” He also emphasized the difficulties of organizing construction in the middle of the city in a World Heritage Zone, but expressed his hope that CEU made a remarkable contribution to the Budapest cityscape with its new campus.
