Hence the first five (5) semesters comprise solely of compulsory courses (25 in total), with an additional three (3) compulsory courses appearing during the sixth (6th), the seventh (7th) and the eighth (8th) semester, respectively.
Streams and Fee Election Courses
Elective courses define the degree's main structure from the 6th semester onwards; at the beginning of that semester, students select the stream(s) in which they specialize and thus obtain in-depth knowledge and experience. Currently, the Department offers the streams of:
- Operations Research and Business Analytics
- Operations and Supply Chain Management
- Software and Data Analysis Technologies
- Information Systems and Electronic Business
- Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Human Resources
Each stream comprises six (6) courses (compulsory for the stream).
Each student has to enroll in a total of eleven (11) elective courses, based upon the selection of either (a) a single stream (major), or (b) two streams, namely a primary (major) and a secondary (minor) one. Under the first setting, students enroll in all six (6) courses of their major stream plus five (5) additional courses of their choice from the Department's course list or from the predefined list of courses offered by other Departments of AUEB. Under the second setting, students enroll in all six (6) courses of their major stream plus any three (3) courses of their minor stream plus two (2) courses of their choice from the Department's course list or from the predefined list of courses offered by other Departments of AUEB.
Under this framework, and based on the guidance of their supervisors, students select the courses that match their academic and professional interests. The specialized knowledge of the 6th and the 7th semester builds on the solid academic background formed during the first five semesters and is actively combined with a pertinent working experience during the 3-month internship of the 8th semester.
