Transfers - Classifications

The department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Products after the 67859/B1/05-07-2006 decision made by the Ministry (FEK 874/10-07-2006 t.B) was regarded as non-equivalent with other University departments. As a result transfers will not be realized because the existence of equivalence is an indispensable requirement for the application according to the law N.3282/2004 (FEK 208/01-11-2004 t.A)
The students should refer to the Departmental Secretariat for matters concerning the necessary requirements for classification, the deadlines of applications and other relevant information. All requirements should be handed in between 1-15 of November of each academic year

  • Information relating to postgraduate studies

Student Union

After the commencement of the department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Products in 1998, the activities of the student union started to take place. Apparently, the number of students then was small, however a very friendly student community was created eager to work. As the years went by, this community continued and still continues to take action becoming larger. The student union is represented by a five member council and for the academic year 2007- 2008, the council’s settlement include:

Chairman: Fronimakis Nikolaos
Vice-Chairman: Diafonidi Eleni
Secretary: Tsibrikidis Georgios
Treasurer: Tsakakou Theodora
Member: Xarchis Nikolaos

Beside the daily activities, the student union of the Department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Products during the academic year 2002-2003 took the initiative and organized two meetings related to quality and how it is linked to business administration. The topics in the meetings were:
  • Agriculture and Environment: The challenges of Quality
  • The role of certification on the quality of agricultural products
Both meetings that took place were sponsored by the Company of Business Administration and hosted expert scientists in the field. In addition, in collaboration with academic teachers of the department, the student union organized various seminars, discussions and events. Moreover, the student union offered essential help in the organization of the first conference that took place in Agrinio in November 2003. During that conference, the department developed a link with five big companies. Our students will have the possibility to collaborate with these enterprises and discuss their occupational rehabilitation.

A vital priority of the student union lately was the consolidation of professional rights and the development of a new, more competitive curriculum, which will be related to contemporary challenges. After constant trials in cooperation with academic teachers of the department, we managed to place among the subject courses, some new course subjects related to economics and management. This fact resulted in obtaining satisfaction from a long lasting request. The department meets all the requirements that the Chamber of Economists sets so that it can be incorporated into it. Therefore, students are able to join the Chamber of Economists.
