Fund your studies
In pursuit of our mission, we strive to attract world-class graduate talent from all over the world. This is why we offer need-based scholarships of up to 12,000 euro for highly qualified candidates from Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia or North Africa, in case their management compensation significantly departs from Western salaries. The need-based scholarship program allows participants from middle-income countries who do not earn Western income levels to attend CEU Executive MBA at a price point similar to that of local programs in these locations.
Separately from our need-based scholarship program, we have developed a number of highly competitive merit-based scholarships. They include the Open World Scholarship, available for participants worldwide as well as our country-specific scholarships set up with a number of highly prestigious institutional partners.
