Admissions Requirements

To be considered for admission in the Part time program, candidates must hold a degree from a formally accredited Greek or international University (AEI), or Technological Institute (TEI), and must submit a fully completed application for admission. Additional requirements include minimum work experience (at least 5 years), and excellent knowledge of English. The average age in the Part time class is approximately 32 years old.
To be considered for a place in the program, candidates must be able to demonstrate that they possess the essential qualities required from tomorrow’s business managers and leaders: Intellectual capacity, managerial potential, personal motivation and maturity, and interpersonal skills. To assess these qualities we carefully consider biographical and academic background information, employment history and distinctions, GMAT score if available, English language proficiency (demonstrated through the Proficiency certificate and/or the TOEFL/IELTS scores, and the interview), extracurricular achievements, service to the community, letters of recommendation, awards and honors received, and University and community involvement, especially where candidates have served in leadership capacities. The Admissions Committee seeks to create a community of students who bring unique contributions from their diverse backgrounds and experiences and who will collectively enrich the educational experience.
Work experience is a requirement for admission to the program. For the Part Time program, candidates should have at least five years of work experience.
GMAT is not mandatory for the Part time Program.

Interviews

All qualified applicants will go through at least two interviews. Interviews are conducted by AUEB faculty members, and, complementarily, by alumni of the program. International candidates, due to distance, may go through telephone interviews, or with interviews only with alumni from their country. Interviews are held after the submission of the application, and once it has been confirmed that the candidate fulfills the minimum admission requirements that have been set by the Admissions Committee.

International Students

The admissions decision schedule and deadlines are the same for all applicants. However, in case an applicant has to go through a visa process, we encourage him/her to apply early.
To be considered for admission, candidates must hold a degree from an accredited College or University. Once accepted, international participants should submit before graduation day the “equivalence” of their undergraduate degree from the DOATAP office.
If you don’t speak Greek, and you are interested in learning the Greek language, yes, this is your opportunity. A professor of Greek as a Foreign Language will teach you Greek and will also take you to the ancient monuments of Athens, and other places in the country, so that you become acquainted with the ancient civilization, history and culture of Greece. This way, it is certain that you will not only enjoy your stay, but also learn an important EU language. By December, we count you will be able to communicate in Greek. Students love this initiative.
In addition to the Greek language, students can take foreign language courses in a number of other languages, including Chinese, French, German, or Italian. You will find out more about these programs upon arrival on campus.
