The curriculum of the Department of Economics is divided into two two-year cycles. The first cycle of studies, which consists of the first four (4) semesters, includes courses common to all students and introductory knowledge is offered in the main fields of Economics and Management Sciences. The second cycle covers the remaining four (4) semesters and is divided into 2 pathways:
(B) Business Administration
Students must choose, entering the fifth semester of their studies, one of the two directions. The elective and direction courses indicate the specialization of the students in the title of their degree.
To obtain the degree, students must register and pass the exams in 46 courses. Of these, 37 are Compulsory Courses (21 in the Core and 16 in the Direction selected cycle), 8 are Elective Courses and one is a Foreign Language course. Students can choose the internship as one of the elective courses. In addition, it is possible to study at a university abroad (for a maximum of one or two academic semesters) through the European Educational Programs (ERASMUS).
A full academic year is equivalent to 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) and a full semester to 30 ECTS credits. Each course is assigned the number of required ECTS based on the workload required by the student to complete the course, laboratory, tutoring, internship, etc. To obtain the degree students must accumulate 240 ECTS.
At the beginning of each semester, students must register for the courses they wish to attend and be examined. Students who attend the semester of the indicative study program (up to the 8th semester of study) can register for up to 12 courses. Students who exceed the 8th semester of study can register for as many courses as they wish, without restriction. Course registration is made on dates announced by the Department Secretariat. It is not possible for a student to take exams in a course that is not included in her/his course registration statement.
The registration of courses is completed through the website https://sis.auth.gr. From the same website, students can receive information about their grades in the courses in which they have been examined.
