The department of International Relations and European Educational Programmes of the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) was established in 1989.
Its main objectives, first and foremost, are to carry out European Union educational programs and to undertake the organization of participation in international student fora and exhibitions. Other objectives are to organize seminars, educational visits and cultural meetings, to promote the University activities abroad and to create new cooperation with foreign higher education institutions. Specifically the Erasmus office offers various facilities and it welcomes Erasmus incoming students, offers assistance in preparing their study programmes, as well as in social integration matters, and providing counseling not only to incoming, but also to outgoing students of Erasmus+/ECTS programme.
The University is member of the European University Association (EUA), of the Community of Mediterranean Universities (CUM), of the European Association for International Education (EAIE), etc. Furthermore, the Athens University of Economics and Business participates in the JEAN MONNET Programme which has financed the establishment of a European Chair in Economics, another one in Law, a European Permanent Course in Political Science, etc.
