The Programme

The International Hellenic University’s MSc in Management is a highly flexible qualification offering access to a wide range of careers in general management, marketing, operations and technology and consultancy services.

It caters to the needs of recent graduates looking for an optimal combination of theory and a practical, hands-on approach. It is also of particular interest to those wishing to start up their own or join the family business.

The first two terms aim to lay solid analytical foundations in all areas related to business and management. During the electives period, students are encouraged to deepen their knowledge and specialise in more specific areas, through four courses. A choice of a dissertation or a group consulting project concludes the programme.

Seminars
