Established in 1973, European University was listed as a top 20 business school by China Economic Review in 2010 and ranked as a top 35 business school in Europe by QS Top MBA in 2013.

In addition to small, dynamic classes taught exclusively in English, EU students enjoy an international environment. EU has a global network of campuses and students are encouraged to participate in intercampus exchanges to countries including Spain, Switzerland, Germany, United Kingdom, Russia, Kazakhstan, Taiwan, Malaysia, the US and China.

There are numerous programmes offered at EU including: Business Foundation, Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Business Administration programs (BF, BBA/BS/BA, MBA and DBA), and the opportunity to specialize in various management areas including Business Administration; Communication & Public Relations; Leisure & Tourism Management; Business Finance; Sports Management; International Relations; Entrepreneurship; and E-Business, among others.

EU brings the American education model to Europe by applying classroom theory to practical skills. The courses are taught in English using the case study method, making business theory accessible. This pragmatic approach to business education effectively prepares students for leadership positions in business and industry. EU is recognized for excellence by various international accreditation institutions, including ACBSP, IACBE and CEEMAN.

Where academia meets business

European University provides an education that is student-oriented, flexible and personal. All courses are taught by qualified faculty members with a wealth of practical experience in their fields and the faculty works with students on an individual basis to create a cooperative and caring learning environment where human values flourish.

The faculty is made up of full-time academics as well as part-time instructors drawn from the international professional community. This combination brings together the best from both the academic and business worlds in a way that supports a unique and exceptional quality of learning.

EU faculty members are entrepreneurs, consultants and business leaders who bring business practice closer to the classroom. Their modern, interactive teaching methodology along with small class sizes ensure students are actively engaged throughout the learning process.

Professors and corporate sector advisors regularly update EU’s curriculum to reflect the latest developments in the business world. Additionally, students attend seminars on innovation and creativity that further develop their analytical and communication skills.

Learning outside the classroom

On-campus events such as conferences, guest lectures, forums, summits and career fairs are always taking place on EU’s multiple campuses. European University’s excellent reputation and varied locations attract some of the most motivating and inspirational leaders who share their experience, advice and insights with captivated students.

Members of the EU community learn from and are challenged by senior industry, government, finance and media personalities. Through these onsite and off-campus activities, EU students forge global business contacts that will last for the rest of their lives.

European University also organizes regular activities that give students an understanding of the world outside the classroom. These seminars, presentations and trips complement the theory that students learn in class, offering hands-on experiences that bring the business world to life.

Success in the global marketplace

The university’s practical programmes have resulted in excellent employment records, aided by career service offices which provide personalized counseling and assistance to each of the students, in addition to organizing annual on-campus career and internship fairs. EU students graduate with the knowledge and skills to excel and innovate in the professional world.

With modern facilities and locations in some of the world’s most attractive cities and economic centers, the university embodies an international and cosmopolitan spirit with student and faculty body comprising of more than 100 nationalities.

EU prepares its students for success in the global marketplace by providing them with keen analytic skills, refined cultural awareness, multilingual skills and clear strategic vision through traditional as well as cutting-edge business programs. This focus on a multicultural atmosphere provides an ideal environment to nurture intercultural communication and the opportunity to develop international business contacts.

The EU application process is clear and straightforward. Students looking to apply for one of the university’s courses should submit their application package and accompanying documents to the relevant campus. Tuition fees are specific to each programme and can be reviewed on the university website.
