Successful implementation of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Program (2108 Project)
at the Athens University of Economics and Business
The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Program (2108 Project), which was funded by the European Commission through the Hellenic National Agency, was implemented successfully at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB).
The Program, which had a thirty eight months duration (01/06/2018 - 31/07/2021), contributed significantly to the further development of international collaborations of our University at an academic and research level and enhanced the already existing academic bonds with Partner Universities, located in non-EU countries.
AUEB, as the Project Coordinator, signed Inter-institutional Agreements and carried out the exchange of thirteen (13) students, teaching and administrative staff members with the following non-EU Higher Education Institutions:
- Stetson University, School of Business Administration, Florida, USA
- Stevens Institute of Technology, Howe School of Technology Management, New Jersey, USA
- Université du Québec à Montréal - École des sciences de la Gestion, Canada
- Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, Moscow, Russia
More specifically, the following types of mobility took place during the Project:
a) first and second cycle students carried out a student mobility period at a Partner Institution with full academic recognition of their learning outcomes through the implementation of the ECTS credit system
b) teaching staff members carried out successfully a short duration teaching mobility period abroad
c) teaching / administrative staff members carried out a training mobility period
The impact of the above mentioned Program to students and staff was significant and led to an increase in the demand for participation from these groups. AUEB, focused on its internationalization strategy and taking into consideration the increasing interest of students and staff to participate in the Program, aims to enrich its partnerships with more non-EU Universities under the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility Program, by adding new Inter-Institutional Agreements to the already existing ones.
