Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) was founded in 1920. It is now considered one of the most competitive universities at the European level in the fields of Economics, Business Administration, Informatics, Statistics, Marketing, Accounting and Finance. The AUEB was the first Greek University to establish postgraduate studies. Today, it enrols over 2,000 postgraduate students in 35 part-time and full-time Master’s level programs, with durations of 1 to 2 years.

It is the first university in Greece to achieve the Distinction of Excellence by the EFQM (European Foundation of Quality Management) Excellence Model, and has also received the corresponding “Ever to Excel” Greek distinction.

The AUEB is by far the most international of Greek universities: it has the largest ratio of Erasmus students to its active student population, and a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate students participating in the Erasmus and Erasmus+ programs. It hosts one of the most active branches of AIΕSEC, through which it provides valuable opportunities for internships abroad.

The Department of Informatics, in its present form, has been in existence since 1984 and focuses on providing innovative undergraduate and postgraduate education, and carrying out research on information and computing. Each year, it welcomes approximately 200 undergraduate and over 100 graduate students. On average, faculty members have over 20 years of teaching experience and have contributed collectively to more than 1,000 research publications, which have attracted over 10,000 citations worldwide. More than half the faculty have been faculty members in leading American and other European Universities.

The Department of Statistics was founded in 1989. Its purpose is to provide innovative and high quality undergraduate and postgraduate education in probability and statistics. Every year 120 undergraduate students are admitted, and two postgraduate courses are run, with excellent student to faculty ratios.
