The School of Economic Sciences of the Faculty of Law, Economic and Political Sciences at the Aristotle University of  Thessaloniki was one of the first schools to be established at the University and has been in continuous operation since 1928, functioning as part of the Faculty of Law, Economic and Political Sciences. Since 1928 it has operated as an autonomous school. In terms of student numbers, it is one of the largest schools in our University. Graduates from our School have gone on to work in the public and private sectors, higher education and also politics.
 
The curriculum offered at the School of Economic Sciences satisfies the need to provide a solid foundation of theoretical knowledge, while also providing students with opportunities to experience practical applications of this knowledge. At the same time the curriculum is quite flexible and constantly open to improvement and revision. It also has a satisfactory combination of compulsory and optional courses.
