Athens University of Economics and Business

The establishment of the Athens University of Economics and Business came about as a historic necessity following the economic, technological and social changes that took place in Greece at the end of the 19th and the early 20th century. Since its foundation the trajectory of the Athens University of Economics and Business has been characterized by a continuous effort to tend to all the complex developments that have transformed Greek society and the broader international environment. The adaptability and dynamism that the University has demonstrated has helped it evolve from a School of Classical and Commercial Studies into a modern and dynamic University not limited to the development of classic Economics or Administrative Sciences but extending to modern decision-making and information Sciences, with emphasis on the integration of quantitative methods and new technologies. Today, the Athens University of Economics and Business is one of the leading Universities in Europe and one of the best universities in the world.
