The two-year masterʼs degree is the first MBA program in Hungary to be taught in English and accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the University of Rhode Island said.

SZE vice-rector Eszter Lukács said the MBA program, the only AACSB accredited one in Central Europe, instructed solely by American URI College of Business professors, is "of immense relevance for Hungarian applicants as well as for candidates from the entire region".

SZE, with an enrollment of about 13,000, is located in the cities of Győr and Mosonmagyaróvár.

According to the report, the university has a deep tradition in engineering and research, particularly in the automotive industry. It also offers programs in IT, architecture, economics, international relations, law, social work, health and sports sciences, musical arts, agriculture, and teacher training.
