School of Economics, Business and International Studies


A few words from the Dean

I welcome you to the official website of the School of Economics, Business and International Studies (SEBIS) of the University of Piraeus.

The School

The School of Economics, Business, and International Studies is the largest in the University of Piraeus, with 4 of its 10 academic departments, 26 laboratories, more than 75 faculty members, and 15 postgraduate programs (Master’s degrees), two of which are taught in English.

The following 4 departments currently operate within the School:

  1.  Department of Economics
  2. Department of Business Administration
  3. Department of International and European Studies
  4. Department of Tourism Studies

The School was officially established in 2013, but its history dates back to 1938 when the School of Industrial Studies was founded. From this, the two oldest departments emerged: the Department of Economics and the Department of Business Administration. The Department of International and European Studies was established in 2000, and the Department of Tourism Studies in 2017.

The SEBIS' Team

The departments are staffed by distinguished scientists of international repute with extensive academic, research, and professional experience. Both the faculty members and the members of the Educational and Research Staff, Special Technical Laboratory Staff, and external doctoral lecturers form the large ‘family’ of the School, actively participating in its activities. This circle also includes undergraduate and postgraduate students, doctoral candidates, and postdoctoral researchers. The School relies on experienced and responsible administrative staff that supervises its scientific and administrative actions to inform both teachers and students.

The Faculty

The faculty of the School possess a rich and recognized body of literary and research work. They continuously publish in reputable scientific journals and impart both theoretical knowledge and practical experience to their students, gained from extensive and distinguished collaborations with public and private sector organizations in Greece and abroad. The School combines high-level studies in economics, business, international, and European affairs. It aims to shape scientists with knowledge, perspective, and creativity in whatever professional field they choose to pursue. Through lectures, seminars, workshops, exercises, simulations, international conferences, academic exchanges, and internships in prominent organizations, it strives to build a vibrant and robust academic community that will guarantee excellence for its graduates and future student generations it will host.

The Study Programs

The School of Economics, Business, and International Studies is at the forefront in the specific academic fields covered by its departments, as evidenced by the first-choice declarations of prospective students. The School’s departments have already achieved a high annual graduation rate on a national scale and follow the rapid absorption of graduates into the labor market. In addition, they offer a range of competitive postgraduate programs in both Greek and English that add value to their degrees and promote excellence in knowledge production. The School boasts over 43.000 alumni from its undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programs.

Both the undergraduate and postgraduate programs of the School are structured similarly to those of the world’s best universities with contemporary academic fields, innovative teaching and assessment methods, inter-university collaborations with institutions abroad, and continuous interaction with the Greek and international scientific community. In all programs, there are core courses that provide a basic background and broad overview of the scientific field, as well as elective courses that allow students to design their own individual study program according to their preferences and goals. All additional activities are counted and recorded in detail in Greek and English in the Diploma Supplement to outline the graduate’s profile in their further career path.

Our Core Principles

The core principles of the School’s educational and research programs are interdisciplinarity, extroversion, transparency, international networking, and systematic research. The School already houses an interdepartmental postgraduate program and intends to intensify its efforts in this direction by utilizing the new legal framework for the development of horizontal collaborations between its Departments, as well as with other Departments in Greece and abroad for joint educational and research programs and academic exchanges.

Education is, of course, student-centered, with a primary concern for the comprehensive preparation of students for the continuous expansion of their theoretical and practical knowledge, the use of new technologies, and the ethical approach to scientific problems they will face in the academic and professional arena. The School places significant importance on research presence, administrative functionality, and the social recognition of its members so that the student experience remains unforgettable and the University becomes a point of reference for its graduates. They should consider it their “home” and a springboard for new achievements and initiatives.

I hope that navigating the pages of the School of Economics, Business, and International Studies’ website will provide you with a comprehensive update on the activities and opportunities that open up on this “journey”.

With warm regards,
