Undergraduate Program in “Administrative Science and Technology” (Bachelor, 4 years of study)
The Department offers the following directions:
A) Making Business Decisions
B) Information Systems

The department’s curriculum is divided into the courses of the first (A’) study cycle or core courses, which include the courses of the first four semesters and are common to all students, and the courses of the second study cycle. The second (B’) study cycle starts from the fifth semester of studies and concerns two specializations (directions): a) BUSINESS DECISION MAKING and b) INFORMATION SYSTEMS.

The student is obliged in the 5th semester to choose one of the two specializations. In case a student wants to change specialization, he can do so until the 7th semester. With the change of specialization, the courses that he had successfully completed from the previous specialization and are not offered in the new specialization appear on his record without being counted towards the degree.

“Foreign Language” and “Foreign Language Terminology” are compulsory courses that have a weighting factor of 0, so they do not count towards the degree grade, but their successful attendance and examination is necessary to obtain a degree. Exceptionally, the student can be exempted from the first exam if he has a certified knowledge of English level C1 (very good knowledge) and can be exempted from both if he has a certified knowledge of English level C2 (excellent knowledge) .

All courses of the 1st and 2nd Cycle of Studies (compulsory and elective) correspond to 5 credit units (ECTS) each with a Weighting Factor of 2 except for the foreign language courses which have a Weighting Factor of 0 and all have a duration of one semester. They are taught by lectures, or lectures and workshops. The division of semester courses into semesters is mandatory for students.

Courses in the scientific area are divided into compulsory and elective courses. Out of the total of 48 scientific area courses required to obtain a degree, 36 are compulsory and 12 are optional.
