On June 21, 2004, the Hungarian Parliament had passed an act establishing a Hungarian private higher education institution under the name Közép-európai Egyetem ( t r a n s- lated as Central European University). And, after the successful accreditation of the Közép-európai Egyetem, approved by the Hungarian Accreditation Committee and the Hungarian Higher Education and Research Council on April 9, 2005, the act on the state recognition of Central European University came into force. The university will offer Hungarian szakirányú továbbképzés ( M a s- t e r s level further specialization) courses in the following fields: k ö z g a z d a s á g t a n ( e c o n o m i c s ) összehasonlító politikatudomány (comparative political s c i e n c e ) nemzetiségi szakértő (nationalism studies) emberi jogi szakjogász (human rights law) Közép-, Kelet- és Délkelet-Európa összehasonlító története (comparative history of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, ) külügyi szakértő (international studies). Közép-európai Egyetem is also entitled to offer doctoral programs in economics and history leading to the d o k t o r i f o k o z a t (PhD/doctoral degree). In the last eventful 12 months, CEU received its formal Middle States Accreditation in the United States (also in June 2004), and now the formal Hungarian accreditation. Central European University has become both a fullyfledged American university as well as a Hungarian one this latter also permitting CEU to take its place among the universities of the European Union. C E U B u s i n e s s S c h o o l A n n o u n c e s N e w J o i n t U n d e r g r a d u a t e P r o g r a m Central European University and Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi (Bocconi University) in Milan, Italy, have announced a new undergraduate degree program offered by both universities in conjunction: the Dual Degree in International Business. The first two years of the program are delivered in Budapest at CEU Business School, and the last two years are delivered in Milan at Bocconi U n i v e r s i t y. The program is taught in English, and successful candidates will receive two degrees: an Italian Degree (L a u r e a) in International Economics and Management (DIEM) from Bocconi, and an American Bachelor of Science (BS) in International Business from CEU. The BS degree in International Business represents the only undergraduate degree currently offered by Central European U n i v e r s i t y. The dual degree develops diversity of thought, international management competencies and a truly global mindset. It prepares graduates with a bigger worldview, since the program combines EU business practices and American management style, with the challenges of the emerging economies. Intercultural competencies will be expanded due to the fact that students will live and study in two diverse, cosmopolitan cities and will be interacting with a Continued on page 3, bottom. B u s i n e s s S c h o o l M o v e s T e m p o r a r i l y On April 18, the CEU Business School (BS) moved from its Nádor u. premises to a new temporary address on Frankel Leó út in Budapest s district II. The move was necessitated by the refurbishment and expansion of the Nádor u. 15 building, the new location of the BS, which will occur over the next two years. Five architecture firms submitted designs for the project, and these were made available for the CEU community to view in the Oktogon area between April 12 - May 6. A suggestion box was set up to collect comments, which were welcomed. C e n t e r f o r H e l l e n i s t i c T r a d i t i o n s A new Center for Hellenistic Traditions (CHT) has just been launched at CEU. The center, directed by István Bodnár, will act on both the regional and the international level and will work as a consortium of all the institutions that are or will be joining it. The institutions/departments expected to join the center at its foundation include: at CEU (Department of Medieval Studies/Department of Philosophy); at Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary (Greek Department/Department of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy); the Claremont Consortium for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, US; and Eberhard Karls University, Germany (Orientalisches Seminar). The CHT will promote interdisciplinary study of the Hellenic tradition. In its international activities the CHT will focus on primary sources, including the survey of these, and their preservation, edition, commentary and translations into English. While the center aims to undertake basic research, it will also encourage interpretative work; indeed its purpose will be to promote a fundamental reinterpretation of interactions of intellectual traditions which eventually gave rise to what one could call the Hellenistic O i k u m e n e. Besides supporting the uncovering of new data, historical methodology will be in the forefront of the CHT's interests. P e t e r B r o w n R e c e i v e s H o n o r a r y D o c t o r a t e On May 20, Peter Brown, best known as the scholar who founded a new academic discipline for the study of Late A n t i q u i t y, was awarded with an honorary doctorate by Central European U n i v e r s i t y. Gábor Klaniczay (CEU University Professor) gave the l a u d a t i o at the event, which was chaired by István Perczel (Associate Professor, Department of Medieval Studies). CEU President and Rector Yehuda Elkana then offered a few words of his own, and presented the award in the name of the Senate of the university. Peter Brown Peter Brown is Philip and Beulah Rollins Professor of History at Princeton University. In his books and studies published since 1967, he has powerfully suggested a new approach to Late Antique history. Pe t e r Brown has for a long time been associated with CEU and its curriculum, a relationship which culminated in his directing a summer course at CEU in This honorary doctorate was the fourth awarded by CEU. Previous honorary doctorate recipients were Paul Ricoeur, Shmuel Eisenstadt, and János Kornai.

Josep Borrell Fontelles, President of the European Parliament, delivered the keynote address at the one-day event, which included three discussion panels. Among the topics addressed were the experiences of the new member states, the dynamics of the new neighborhood policy, the labor market and migration problems, science and culture in the future Europe, transatlantic relations, and Europe in the world. As an institution of higher education CEU has already played an important role during the transition period in this region. And, the conference also gave the start signal to the planned research work on these topics by the newly-created Center for the Study of the Extension of European Integration at CEU, directed by Péter Balázs. The focus of the new center is the specific problems of the new member states, of further candidate countries and of those countries which will remain on the periphery of the enlarging European Union.
