April 5, 2014 - Quinnipiac University's Central European Institute hosted a group of 18 executive MBA students from Corvinus University in Budapest, Hungary from March 30-April 4.

"We take a group of our Quinnipiac MBA students to Hungary for two weeks every June," said Christopher Ball, director of the Central European Institute and István Széchenyi Chair in International Economics at Quinnipiac. "This is a reciprocal visit from students from our partner university in Hungary."

The MBA group toured Quinnipiac's campuses and visited two Connecticut businesses per day during the week-long visit.

The visits give the Hungarian students an opportunity to learn about the different challenges faced by American companies and the different approaches used in the U.S.

The students from Hungary made stops at American Seal & Engineering, Bigelow Tea, Clean Energy Finance and Investment Authority, Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets, Hitachi Capital America Corp., Mitchell's, Pitney Bowes Inc. and Sikorsky Aircraft.
