MBA International celebrates 20 years of success - Dedicated article

10.01.2020 Share

Offered by the top Business and Economics University in Greece, AUEB's MBA International Program (i-MBA) is an innovative program that offers a personalized, technology-focused and strongly networked educational experience that empowers the future of its students. Throughout these 20 years, the MBA International has been rebranded (prior to 2004 it was known as the MSc in Decision Sciences), gained international recognition through its accreditation by the Association of MBAs, earned AMBA’s Global Innovation Award, continuously embraced the latest trends in business through its dynamically evolving curriculum, and developed into a world-class MBA program with students, alumni and faculty from across the world.

Focusing on the individual learner, the i-MBA degree can be personalized and tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of each student. We offer a wide variety of learning opportunities including a rich portfolio of elective courses, and optional Concentrations including Finance, Marketing, Entrepreneurship and International Business. Moreover, a Personal Skills Development program and several options for the graduation projects, combining peer-learning, collaboration with businesses and academic tutoring, are important components of the Program.

The curriculum dynamically evolves to match the trends of the ever-changing market and to prepare our students for the most-sought qualifications and professional profiles, including gateways to several professional certifications, such as PMI, CIMA and GRI. Consequently, students are not only satisfied with the academic dimension of the Program, but also get a broad return on the time and money they invest in their studies. 

The MBA International graduates enjoy excellent career prospects and the employment statistics -95% have jobs within six months after graduation (for Full Time students) & 62% are promoted within one year after graduation (for Part Time students)- indicate the attractiveness of the i-MBA degree in the market. This is much due to the numerous career development activities offered. Personalized career counselling sessions enable students to take charge of their development path and address their professional development needs. Career workshops support the development of skills and business acumen. And in the annual Career Fair employers and candidates match interests and employment objectives through in-depth assessments and face-to-face interviews.

Over the past two decades, the MBA International has welcomed over 2.000 talented, diverse and visionary individuals from Greece and internationally (30 Nationalities), who have been educated and trained by more than 80 professors and business executives, and now occupy key leadership positions within leading organizations, in Greece and globally. Besides a range of dedicated course, and visiting faculty from abroad, the international dimension is also enhanced by the Program’s International Alumni Ambassadors who are graduates of the program from different countries and backgrounds, working across the globe. They are happy to share their experiences with prospective candidates of the Program through the dedicated International Ambassadors webpage. 

The amazing 20-year journey of the Program wouldn’t have been possible without the vision and contribution of the Program’s Leadership, Faculty, Staff and Sponsors, and the great trust of our Students, Alumni and all recruiters in the market.

We warmly thank everyone for their continuous support and look forward to celebrating together this major milestone, which marks the kick-off for the next 20 years. Aiming to take the lead in fulfilling visions of a more sustainable development model, the i-MBA will evolve around the four strategic pillars of Innovation in Curriculum and Delivery, Internationalization, Quality of Student Experience, and Relations with Society.

We invite all our partners, Faculty, students and alumni to celebrate the MBA International 20 years anniversary on January 21, 2020. The agenda of the event will include keynote speeches by business executives and Professors, snapshots of the Program’s history awards and will conclude with a networking reception.
