The Department of Business Administration was the first department of the University of the Aegean. It first admitted undergraduate students during the academic year (1985-86) with seven faculty members, seven administrative employees and 103 first-year students. Four years later, in the fall of 1989, the Department awarded degrees to its first ten graduates. Since its official inauguration on October 30, 1985, the Department has awarded 1465 Bachelor’s degrees, 747 Master’s degrees and 71 doctoral degrees.

The Department’s innovative programs and practices have often been adopted by other departments of the University and by other Greek universities. Among them are:

• Summer Internship Programme (1986).
• Liaison Committee (1990)
(Educational visits to companies in Greece and abroad - Weekly guest lectures)
• Tutors (1985)


The premises of the University of the Aegean are located in the center of the city of Chios and are easily accessible by public transport. Some of the buildings have been preserved and are reminiscent of the rich architecture and history of Chios Island. The University’s premises are being developed and improved thanks to wide support by the local community and other ongoing programs, aiming at expanding the existing infrastructure.
