CEU’s international faculty come from over 30 countries and hold degrees from world leading universities. Both renowned senior and talented young scholars are attracted to CEU scholarly standards, social mission, and the willingness to encourage intellectual risk and the pursuit of new knowledge. We have an exceptional student:teacher ratio of 7:1. More than 130 permanent and 170 visiting professors and instructors help the students to benefit from a rich diversity of ideas, expertise and teaching styles. Our professors are encouraged to spend half of their time on research activities, many of which are hosted in the university’s own Research Centers. Our students also have access to outstanding visiting professors who come from other leading institutions worldwide.
Studies at CEU combine disciplinary rigor with interdisciplinary pursuits focusing on critical issues relevant to public policy of the 21st century. CEU fosters an environment where the values of open society thrive and critical, reflective debate is encouraged.
