University & Society

The Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) was founded in 1920 under the name of Athens School of Commercial Studies, through a generous grant by benefactor Grigorios Marlaslis. It was renamed in 1926 to the Athens School of Economics and Business, a name that was retained until 1989 when it assumed its present name, the Athens University of Economics and Business.

It is the oldest university in Greece in the fields of Economics and Business, its roots tracing to the establishment of a Merchant Academy in Athens. Up to 1955 the School offered only one degree in the general area of economics and commerce. In 1955 the duration of study at the School is increased from three to four years and two cycles of study leading to two separate degrees: one in economics and the other in business administration. In 1984 the School was divided into three departments, namely the Department of Economics, the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Statistics and Business Informatics, the latter renamed to the Informatics Department in 1995. In 1978 the University puts in operation the first Master’s program in Greece, the MSc in Economics, still in operation and highly regarded today. In 1989, the University expanded to six departments. From 1999 onwards, the University developed even further and nowadays it includes eight academic departments, offering eight undergraduate degrees, 29 Master’s degrees and an equivalent number of doctoral programs.

School of Business | Department of Management Science & Technology

The program covers in detail theoretical concepts on business, statistics and data management, while it recognizes the importance of practical training on systems and tools. In addition, special care has been given to the “breadth requirement”: exposure on analytics applications in different fields and domains. The result is a well-balanced program between theory and practice. Theoretical concepts account for 50% of the program, systems and tools account for 25% of the program and the “breadth requirement” accounts for another 25% of the program. Theoretical concepts fall in four broad thematic areas:

  • Business Environment and Processes (Information Systems & Business Process Management, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Business and Privacy Issues in Data Analysis)
  • Statistics (Statistics for Business Analytics I, Statistics for Business Analytics II, Advanced Topics in Statistics)
  • Data Management (Data Management & Business Intelligence, Big Data Systems, Advanced Topics in Data Engineering)
