Rector's Welcome

The Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) will soon be completing one full century of operation. Through the efforts of thousands of members of the University community over this period, AUEB has attained recognition as a center of educational and scientific excellence and as a source of intellectual wealth for our country.
The scientific identity of AUEB is defined by its three Schools: the School of Economic Sciences, the School of Business and the School of Information Sciences and Technology. These are the scientific disciplines in which AUEB holds a leading position and for which it receives international recognition. AUEB’s eight Departments, which occupy top positions in the preferences of prospective undergraduate students, its popular full-time and part-time Master's programs, as well as its high quality Doctoral programs, contribute to AUEB’s ranking among the top Universities internationally.
Everyone working at AUEB, through their individual skills and efforts, helps us fulfill our dual objectives of educating students who are distinguished by their scientific knowledge and imbued with moral values, and of awarding degrees which have earned recognition in the international job market. We consider it essential to provide an academic environment that is of high aesthetics and that ensures respect for freedom of thought and speech. We aim to serve as a source of excellence and to contribute through our collaborations to the growth of the economy and the resolution of vital social problems. We believe that, by imparting knowledge and high quality scientific education to our students, we help pave the way for continual progress.
This is our University, and I invite you to get to know it better.

The Rector

Professor Emmanouil A. Giakoumakis
