MBA International, offered by Athens University of Economics and Business, is a world-class program particularly suited in the global, dynamically changing, and technology-driven business environment. The Program is accredited by AMBA, the Association of MBAs and was the recipient of AMBA MBA Innovation Award 2013.

The MBA International is offered exclusively in English, and attracts students from more than 20 countries. Participants of the program can select, besides the general Business Administration track, one of the 5 majors offered, thus gaining additional knowledge in an area of interest, or facilitating a career switch. The majors offered focus on Finance; International Business; Marketing & Strategy; Innovation & Entrepreneurship; Technology, Logistics & Operations. All courses stimulate intellectual excitement and active student participation. Individual and group assignments, animated discussions, case studies, presentations, business games and projects enable them to keep their minds sharp and develop a sound way of thinking.

Two of the outstanding features of the program are the Personal Skills Development Program (PSDP) and the Immersion Project. All students have to participate in these programs. The PSDP is a year-long program that runs in parallel with the other courses, and allows students to improve their "soft-skills" (e.g. stress management, time management, leadership, team-building, emotional intelligence) through a variety of pedagogical activities.

The Immersion Project, that can involve a Field Study Consulting Project, an International Internship, a Business Plan for a student's initiated venture or another relevant team or individual project, is a sought-after component of our program. It offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a business environment by working for 3 months on a real-company problem or an entrepreneurial idea. A significant number of our students get job offers while doing their Immersion Project.

Upon arrival at the MBA International program, participants find one of the most precious resources for their career development. Whether they want to switch or to improve their career options, successfully completing the Program will open doors of opportunities. All along the study program, students benefit from the assistance of cutting edge professionals providing the tools, services and techniques that utilize the competencies taught in the MBA International program. Two particular assets of the program are the Career Office and the MBA International Alumni Association.

Besides the very broad curriculum, students participate in a number of extracurricular activities, such as company days, career days, business games and competitions, athletic events etc, that aim to develop further their personal or professional interests, as well as their networking. During the first weekend in the program students participate in an experiential learning program, away from Athens. The objective of that weekend is for students to meet the other participants, and, through a series of athletic activities, to experience the concepts of leadership, team work, and planning.

A member of the United Nations Global Compact initiative since 2006, and the Global Compact Network Hellas since its foundation in 2008, MBA International takes pride in promoting Corporate Social Responsibility through curriculum, collaboration with business, academic research and various student activities.
