Program Overview

Budapest is a grand place to explore Central and Eastern European history while building knowledge in business, economics, finance, management, and marketing. Students take classes in English at CIEE’s partner school, Cornivus University, which is located on the banks of the Danube, as well as CIEE Budapest, which is located on the Cornivus campus. The location is ideal for exploring the beautiful architecture and historic sites of both Buda and Pest and for taking part in an internship for real-world international work experience.

All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
