Registration/participation in the 3rd Student Competition in Economics "HERMES" has started


The period of participation-registration in the 3rd Student Competition in Economics "HERMES" for seniors of General & Technical Lyceum has started. The competition was established two years ago, on the 100th anniversary celebration of the founding of the Athens University of Economics & Business.

With the approval of the Ministry of Education (Φ15 / 143942 / Δ2 / 10-11-2021), the organization and conduct of the competition is undertaken by AUEB in collaboration with the Economic Chamber of Greece and the Association of Economics Teachers of Secondary Education.

The student competition "HERMES" in Economics is an annual competition of rival economic knowledge addressed to all senior students of Lyceum in the country to strengthen the inclination of prospective students in economics and to motivate the younger generation to be better informed on economic developments.

The participants will be examined in the subject of Economics, as determined by the relevant Lyceum curriculum, but also the broader knowledge and references contained in other similar coursebooks.

"HERMES" Competition will take place in 2 phases.

Phase A will be conducted remotely on Saturday, March 19, 2022, 16:00 to 18:00. All students who will participate in the Competition will take part in this process. This procedure relieves the participants from the obligation to commute & attend in examination rooms.

Phase B will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2022, 09:00 to 11:00, where only the winners of the first phase of the Competition will take part. Phase B is planned to take place at the premises of the Athens University of Economics and Business (provided that the SARS CoV2 restrictions have been further regulated). Travel expenses of the 2nd phase burden the participants exclusively, ie without State and AUEB contributions. Otherwise, it will also be remotely conducted.

The submission of the students' participation forms is done electronically at  from 1/1/2022 to 31/1/2022.
