Hungary’s leading talent institution, Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC), has acquired a stake in the Modul University in Vienna, Austria’s leading private university.
The Modul University Vienna provides high-quality practical training and also runs extensive research programs, in which the MCC academic staff will now be involved, MCC announced in a statement on Friday.
According to the 2020 edition of U-Multirank, which uses a multidimensional, user-driven approach to rank higher education institutions globally,
Modul University Vienna is among the top 25 universities in the world.
According to the statement, the university fits perfectly into the profile of MCC, as education at the institution is based on small groups and mentoring, follows international standards, has a strong research background, and provides personalized talent development. The teachers at the university come from over forty countries, and the language of instruction is English.
Referring to its intensifying international networking and expansion, MCC noted in their statement that last autumn, MCC opened a training center in Brussels, where students can learn firsthand about the workings of the European Union.
A few weeks ago, it partnered with ESMT Berlin to offer scholarships to more than 20 students a year at Germany’s top-ranked business school. MCC also concluded an agreement with The Roger Scruton Legacy Foundation, allowing MCC students to study at some of the UK’s top universities.
Balázs Orbán, the chairman of MCC’s board – and also the Prime Minister’s Political Director – pointed out on Facebook that the acquisition not only expands the university’s activities, but also strengthens its international weight.
