& Regional Development

Department of Economic

Postgraduate Studies

The Department of Economic and Regional Development has a long history in the teaching and the development of scientific research in Applied Economic Analysis, in Administration and Management, on issues of urban and regional development, and in real estate. It is the first economics department in Greece which adopted the combination of Economic Theory with Applied Economics and Administration, and Regional Development.
This innovative graduate program has attracted a group of scientists with abilities, skills and a subject area who produce a synthesis of theory and practice that is rare both in Greece and abroad. They have experience in the market and have developed a broad international network of collaboration. They produce valuable applied research, make publications, and they contribute to planning and decision making at both national and regional levels.
The ultimate goal of the program is for the students who graduate from this program to broaden their theoretical background and to acquire applied methods and skills of analysis and management. Thus they will be able to: understand the complex, multi-dimensional and constantly changing reality at a micro, macro and regional level; and to respond effectively to the contemporary demands of the private, social and public sectors, in Greece and internationally.

The purpose of the program is to provide scientific, theoretical and applied education, as well as the specialized professional training of Economists, Regionalists, and personnel of companies and organizations on issues of applied economic analysis, economic policy, the administration of companies and organizations, as well as on issues of urban and regional development and real estate.

The Program includes a combination of selected theoretical and applied subject areas which
• support the research and academic interests of the candidates who wish to go on to doctoral studies,
• supplies the graduates with knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to go on to work in the private, public and social sectors,

Taking the Masters Program, students will acquire specialized knowledge and skills in applied Economics, the Administration of Businesses and Organizations, Regional Development and the formation and application of Economic and Regional Policy.

The knowledge and the skills acquired in the Masters Program will allow you to become professionally active in organizations and businesses in the public and private spheres, in central, regional and local administration, as well as in Universities, Research Institutes, NGOs and International Organizations.
