Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Study Abroad + Options
Budapest is considered by many to be one of the hidden treasures of Europe. It is a thriving city of modern bridges, cafes, and markets amid an eclectic mix of architectural styles that reflect Budapest’s unique history. The Danube River splits the city of Budapest into its two halves, Buda and Pest. On the Buda side, Castle Hill, the Royal Palace, and Old Town are sites not to be missed. Wait until darkness falls for a breathtaking view of the river with the lights of the seven bridges, the castle and the Parliament building reflected on the water. Pest is the political and economic heart of the city. Its main symbol is the Parliament, which is one of the most recognizable structures in Budapest. Visitors should explore the central market for anything from souvenirs to dinner, or visit one of Budapest’s renowned thermal baths.
API students who choose to study abroad in Budapest will attend classes through the International Study Programs (ISP) department of the Corvinus University. One of the leading universities for economics in Hungary and Central Europe, Corvinus University hosts approximately 17,000 students annually. The International Study Programs department was established in 1990 with the purpose of welcoming international students for study abroad sessions as well as for degree programs. Throughout its history, the ISP has welcomed over 5,000 students from 83 countries. Visiting students can choose from a variety of classes in economics, business, social sciences, and public administration. Corvinus University also holds AMBA accreditation. Courses are designed in an American format and taught in English.
“Budapest is the best place in the world I have ever traveled to. There is so much to do, so many foreign friends to make, and it is far less expensive than the rest of Europe."
API students in Budapest have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including teaching English to students grades 5-12.
