Széchenyi István University (Győr) and the University of Rhode Island, RI (USA) offer an online double-degree MBA program, which allows students to register at both universities simultaneously and to complete a full program of study at each institution.

The University of Rhode Island is accredited by AACSB International – the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than five per cent of the world’s business programs.


When you see an institution display the AACSB accreditation seal, you can be confident that the school is committed to continually improving the quality of the education it offers – preparing you to succeed in your career. AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-caliber instructors, and offer the leading-edge courses and programs that businesses look for when hiring the leaders they need today – and tomorrow.
