The Department of Economics pioneered in organising postgraduate studies in Economics in Greece since 1978, both at the Master’s and the doctoral level. During its history of more than thirty years, the Department has trained highly-qualified economists, many of whom now hold academic and research positions in universities, or occupy high level managerial positions both in Greece and abroad.

Since 1980 more than 1000 students have graduated from the program, who now excel either as faculty members at universities and research institutes in Greece and abroad, or in senior positions in the private and public sector, such as the (Central) Bank of Greece, private Greek and foreign banks and consulting firms, while several of our graduates are continuing their studies at the doctoral level at top Universities in Europe and the US, or at the Department.
