Admissions Requirements

To be considered for admission in the Full 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 3 years) and excellent knowledge of English. The average age in the Full time class is approximately 28 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, 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, a GMAT score (optional and above 550) 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 Full time program, candidates should have at least three years of work experience. However, candidates with limited work experience who have exceptional academic records and a GMAT score (above 550), as well as demonstrated strong leadership, may also be admitted to the program.
GMAT (with a score above 550) is optional. It can be a merit in the admission assessment, and for the Full Time program specific GMAT scores can merit scholarships. When registering for the GMAT test, please indicate the school’s code number WF7-WH-52.

Interviews

All qualified applicants will go through interview. Interviews are conducted mainly by AUEB faculty members and, in some cases, 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 (click here to found out the admission deadlines). 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.
According to the EU-Eurobarometer Special Survey, around 51 % of the Greek population speaks English. Thus, as an International student you will not face difficulties in communication. At the moment, no Greek courses are given by the MBA International Program. Nevertheless, we encourage our International students to learn Greek since it will help them cope more effectively in their day-to-day activities. For that matter, there are both public and private institutions, which offer Greek language courses.
