Central European University Moves To Vienna

Central European University (CEU) has confirmed that it is moving its US-accredited degree programmes from Budapest to Vienna in 2019, after being "forced out" of the Hungarian capital, Euronews reports.

It comes after the Hungarian government refused to sign an agreement that it negotiated over a year ago with the State of New York that would have ensured CEU's operations in Budapest for the long-term, the university said in a press release.

"CEU has been forced out," its president and rector, Michael Ignatieff, said. "This is unprecedented".

"A US institution has been driven out of a country that is a NATO ally. A European institution has been ousted from a member state of the EU," he added.
