Greetings from the Director

Βαλίσλης Παπαδάκης

Dear Candidate,

Thank you for visiting our website. The Executive MBA program of the Athens University of Economics and Business was founded in 1998 and has already completed two successful decades in training managers and executives. It is the first MBA program in Greece that was specifically addressed to executives and since its conception during the 90s from Professor D. Bourantas until today, the objective has remained the same; to develop the future leaders of business and organizations.

We are not another part time MBA, but the first Executive MBA in Greece that aims to cultivate the leadership and strategic skills and competencies of its students.

This aim becomes even more important when you think of the contemporary business environment as an increasingly dynamic, global, complex and highly competitive environment. As a result, businesses and organizations are invited to meet these challenges by developing up-to-date strategies, philosophies, methodologies and capabilities. If an executive wants to be successful, just being a manager is not enough anymore. They need to be leaders. With these in mind, we have carefully designed a program that future leaders will find most useful. Apart from learning the methods, techniques and tools, executives will graduate from our MBA with a deep understanding of the culture and the skills that contemporary leadership and strategic roles require.

What makes our MBA unique in Greece and one of the best in Europe, as confirmed by the accreditation fAMBA (Association of MBAs), is the perfect balance between theory and practice, the academic scrutiny, the quality of education, the contemporary educational methodologies, but mostly the highly experienced and outstanding staff.

It is also worth mentioning that our program is the only MBA in Greece that according to the international institution Eduniversal is listed among the 30 best European MBA programs (

So, if you wish to make a difference in your chosen field and be equipped with the skills that will take your career to the next level, then Executive MBA is the perfect choice for you. We would be happy and honored to have you in our program.

Yours sincerely

Professor Vassilis Papadakis
Director of Executive MBA
