The IBEA program was launched in 2004 and is the first program of its kind in Greece; it introduced modules related to the study of business in the European Union combined with a strategic approach to studying multinational corporations. IBEA students develop critical insights into the world of international and European business and the strategies available to firms conducting business internationally. The program equips students with appropriate skills and knowledge to succeed in a competitive and challenging global environment. Graduates of the program are much sought after by multinational, regional, and high-profile Greek companies. The IBEA program attracts students from different countries, who enrich the cultural and academic distinctiveness of the department through their diverse ethnic and social backgrounds and experiences.
