On Monday, 17 October 2016, i-MBA students had the opportunity to welcome and network with a group of 50 MBA students of the Monash Business School, Monash University, Australia, who visited Athens in the frame of a study trip.
During the welcome event, which took place in the Impact Hub Athens, Professor George Siomkos, Dean of the School of Business at AUEB, briefly introduced AUEB to the students and a cocktail reception followed.
