Central European University’s MS in Business Analytics program is the best in Central Europe, including Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, according to the latest Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings’ QS Business Masters Rankings  report released September 25. CEU’s program ranked 50th in the world, QS said. Regional rankings were not issued separately - they are derived from the overall rankings.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and CEU colleague Marianne Saghy, founding faculty member of the Department of Medieval Studies, on September 21. Marianne taught and wrote in her chosen field of late antique and medieval cult of saints and religious culture, with a passion that easily drew the interest of her students and colleagues. She will be sorely missed.

Transforming Academia: New Tools for Transnational Analysis in Postgraduate Intersectional Gender Research

In the midst of the current attacks on Gender Studies, which are aiming to undermine its academic legitimization, this round table proposes to discuss the significance of research in the field from an interdisciplinary perspective. The focus of this discussion is on intersectional approaches and transnational perspectives, to be interrogated as productive theoretical and methodological starting points in creating new tools for research across disciplines.

CEU’s new campus buildings in Nador utca 13 and 15 rank among the best in the world, since they were shortlisted for one of the world’s most prestigious architecture awards, the Royal Institute of British Architects’ RIBA International Prize. CEU’s buildings are among just 4 finalists for the award.

Gender equality is an integral part of CEU’s foundational values of an open society. CEU is strongly committed to ensuring that its faculty, staff and students are treated and respected equally regardless of their gender identity. To enhance its commitment towards gender equality, in June 2018 CEU joined the Supporting the Promotion of Equality in Research and Academia European initiative (SUPERA project).
