Undergraduate Studies

Each department of the Athens University of Economics and Business awards an undergraduate degree (Ptychion) equivalent to a four-year B.A. or B.Sc. in their respective fields. Students are accepted after a successful nation-wide entrance examination. On the average, only one out of seven candidates is admitted. In some departments the competition is even higher. AUEB departments traditionally accept the candidates with the highest scores in the entrance exams.

To be able to graduate and get his/her degree, a student has to attend and successfully complete eight semesters of study (four years), corresponding to a total of approximately 240 ECTS credits. These credits correspond to core as well as to elective courses. Students in some departments are allowed to take courses offered by other departments. Foreign language courses in English, French or German are offered in six semesters. Depending on their choice of electives, students acquire a major concentration on particular subjects. According to the University's grading system the grades range from zero (0) to ten (10). The passing grades are from five (5) and above.
