The Central European University (CEU) – founded by George Soros -, and the City of Vienna announced on Monday that they are in negotiations about a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to enable CEU to open a satellite campus in Vienna.
“As the largest German-speaking university city close to CEU’s home base in Budapest, Vienna offers ideal conditions for a new site. On the basis of the MoU, the Otto Wagner area will be examined as a possible location. The MoU commits CEU and Vienna to conclude a 99-year lease, making for a long-term commitment to the city,” CEU’s press statement stresses.
CEU has a home campus in Budapest and an American site at Bard College in New York State.
