The Department of Economics is a member of the Univesity of Thessaly and has it's base in Volos
The Department offers three majors:
- Institutions and Economic Development
- Banking and Finance
- Business Economics
In the fourth year students must successfully complete ten courses, four of which are compulsory, plus at least two elective courses from his/her major. The remaining four courses are to be chosen from the other major, or from another Department of the University of Thessaly.
During their last semester, the students must write a dissertation on a subject chosen from either of the three majors. The dissertation is equivalent to one course. If a student chooses not to write a dissertation, he/she may choose one additional course, which should belong to one of the majors from the final year's programme. The programme envisages a bimonthly practice in a public or private firm.
