A Memorandum of Intent for Cooperation (Memorandum of Intent for Collaboration) with the Kelley School of Business Indiana University was signed by the Athens University of Economics and Business.
It is one of the top Business Schools in the USA. More specifically, it ranks 3rd as an MBA in marketing and 7th for the quality of its teachers by Princeton Review 2021. In addition, Poets & Quants has named Kelley the 23rd MBA in the US for 2021, as well as the U.S. News & World Report in 2022.
QS MBA Rankings 2021 has ranked Kelley 19th in business schools in the US and 38th in the world. Finally, Forbes ranks it 19th in the US business schools.
The memorandum of cooperation followed the highly successful partnership developed by the two institutions, in the framework of which 22 undergraduate students were selected from the four Departments of the School of Business Administration of the Athens University of Economics and Business, which collaborated with a corresponding number of Indiana University students and studied -in mixed groups- a fast growing Greek start-up.
The collaboration took place within a week after the Easter holidays. At the end of this week, all groups presented their proposals and were evaluated for completeness and documentation. Greek students received a Certificate of Participation from the Kelley School of Business, while, respectively, Kelley students received a Certificate from the AOP.
The Vice Rector for International Cooperation and Development of the AOP, Professor Vassilis Papadakis, regarding the future of this cooperation, said: – due to the pandemic – it took place online. We hope that in 2022, we will be able to host Indiana students and their three Professors in Athens. Through the signing of the MOI, this cooperation aspires to be extended to the creation of other teaching and research programs for our students and teachers, to their participation in joint research activities and to the development of joint programs and projects. This is the beginning of a long-term mutually beneficial academic collaboration with a leading US University.”
