“Quinnipiac University partnered with the Corvinus University in Budapest, Hungary in 2007,” said Christopher Ball, associate professor and Istvan Szechenyi chair in international economics in Quinnipiac’s School of Business. “Since 2008, the Corvinus School of Management has hosted a visiting Quinnipiac School of Business MBA group in Hungary every June for two weeks and we have been hosting an MBA group from Corvinus for one week in Connecticut since 2009. Students participating in these exchanges not only get an introduction to other countries and cultures but also to modern global business practice.”
