THE UNIVERSITY OF PIRAEUS, DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS
The University of Piraeus was founded as a “School of Industrial Studies” in 1938 by the Association of Industrialists and Craftsmen, in association with the Federation of Public Limited Companies Greece intending to provide economic, legal and technical education to industrial executives.
In 1945 it was renamed to “Higher School of Industrial Studies” and its purpose was to provide systematic theoretical and practical training to managers.
Since 1966, the school operates as a public entity. From the academic year 1971-1972, studying at the School provided two paths to select from the second year: Economic Science and Business Administration.
Today, the University has 4 Schools and 10 Departments.
