Hungary's combative Prime Minister Viktor Orban deepened his row with George Soros Friday, saying a prestigious Budapest university founded by the U.S. billionaire was cheating students by breaking rules.The CEU believes it is the main target of Orban's plan and has said that its existence is under threat.Orban said Friday that the aim was to stop universities from countries outside of the European Union from being able to cheat students.Orban argues that the U.S.-registered CEU enjoys an unfair advantage over local universities because it can award both a Hungarian diploma and an American one.Currently teaching 1,400 students from more than 100 countries, the English-language CEU ranks among the top 50 universities in the world in political science and international studies.
