According to their information, “behind the sudden and drastic decision are the leadership styles that Anthony Radev, President of BCE, which many considered“ incompatible. ”At the request of the Index, BCE confirmed this.
The National Petroleum Bureau (MNB) decided to close its cooperation with Corvinus.
As they write, the Central Bank and Corvinus Management are currently working together on a smooth transition so that neither the education portfolio nor the students or teachers are at a disadvantage.
By the way, we had an interview with Anthony Radev in early April, in which the university’s president talked about BCE soon becoming one of the best universities in the world.
Corvinus: There is no conflict
According to the university, Corvinus will continue to ensure smooth operating conditions without the participation of an outside partner. However, they also added that it is contrary to confirmation of the article published at the present time
There has never been and has never been any professional conflict between MNB and Corvinus.

At the university, they are not concerned about the MNB move, as one of the main pillars of Corvinus’ training portfolio is the field of economic training, which “cannot be tied to any outside partner, it has always been an independent activity of the University”. They added that there were and will remain strategic partners in this field of training, “but this does not mean that the existence and standards of vocational training depend on any partner.”
The National Security Council did not interact substantially
We also sought the central bank’s request in the case, which sent literally the same few sentences to our questions as at present:
“According to the Central Bank Law, Magyar Nemzeti Bank considers its mission to be to develop the financial culture, the economic thinking that underpins it, the institutional system and the infrastructure that supports it, from general economic thinking to the support of scientific activities. Therefore, Magyar Nemzeti Bank’s goal is to raise the level of education.
