We are a School dedicated to continuous improvement for excellence, while creating an inspiring learning environment for our students and staff.

The vision and the core values mentioned above are reflected in our cutting-edge, accredited, innovative and flexible study-programs offered at undergraduate and postgraduate level, both in English and in Greek.

All our programs, delivered via traditional classroom mode or online (distance learning), are scientifically founded, interdisciplinary and practice-oriented.

In a vibrant learning community, we recruit full-time and part-time students from various countries. The School has links with the business world, maritime and law firms and organizations from both the private and public sectors. We offer our students the opportunity to undertake an internship as part of their study program. Through our long-standing relation with professional bodies, our accounting and finance graduates receive exemptions for a series of subjects from ACCA, ICAEW and AIΑ. Our Maritime Studies graduates receive exceptions from the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), whereas our law students are placed in top law offices for vocational training and practice and achieve top rankings in the Legal Council Exams. The majority of our graduates from the MBA Program and the MSc in International Trade are successfully employed in various fields of the public and private sectors.

Department of Law

The Department of Law aims to provide students with a thorough and high-quality education, by integrating them into what the science of law is all about: A systematized body of knowledge that interprets the law in force in a given society as regulatory rules in people’s lives. Various teaching methods are employed to introduce students to the fundamental and specific aspects of the science of law and art of advocacy. The detailed curriculum is based on the belief that the objectives of a Department of Law are not strictly limited to making lawyers capable of performing before a court, but also achieve the integration of graduates in all productive sectors of the economy and the promotion of the general role of the science of law in further developing a mature society. The Department’s faculty is comprised of distinguished academics and esteemed practitioners who instill a strong applied dimension to the Department.
