  • In its sixth decade of oper­a­tion, the Uni­ver­sity of Mace­do­nia, the con­ti­nu­ity of the his­tor­i­cal Grad­u­ate School of Indus­trial Stud­ies of Thes­sa­loniki, is a mod­ern state Higher Edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion, renowned for the ambi­ence of qual­ity, free­dom, democ­racy, mer­i­toc­racy and indi­vid­ual devel­op­ment it pro­vides to all its mem­bers: stu­dents, Aca­d­e­mic and Research Staff and uni­ver­sity employees.

    Our mis­sion has long been to con­tribute to soci­ety, to the socio-​economic devel­op­ment of our coun­try through the sub­jects we offer in our four Schools, the research con­ducted and the advance­ment and dis­sem­i­na­tion of knowledge.

    The Uni­ver­sity of Mace­do­nia of Eco­nomic and Social Sci­ences, estab­lished by Gov­ern­ment decree No 147 of April 10 1990, has a his­tory as an insti­tu­tion. It was at first formed under the name of “The Grad­u­ate School of Indus­trial Stud­ies of Thes­sa­loniki” in 1948, but it first func­tioned dur­ing the aca­d­e­mic year 1957 – 58. In 1958 it was renamed “Grad­u­ate Indus­trial School of Thes­sa­loniki” and from 197172 it was divided into two Depart­ments: Depart­ment of Eco­nom­ics and Depart­ment of Busi­ness Administration.

    At the present time the Uni­ver­sity of Mace­do­nia has five departments:

    1. Depart­ment of Eco­nom­ics
    2. Depart­ment of Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion
    3. Depart­ment of Inter­na­tional and Euro­pean Eco­nomic and Polit­i­cal Stud­ies
    4. Depart­ment of Account­ing and Finance
    5. Depart­ment of Applied Infor­mat­ics

    Each of these Depart­ments offers a bach­e­lor degree (in Greek pty­chion). Recently, accord­ing to the pres­i­den­tial decree 267/​93, the Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tional & Social Stud­ies was estab­lished and accepted stu­dents for the first time in automne 1997. Finally two more depart­ments were also estab­lished: Depart­ment of Balkan, Slavonic & Ori­en­tal Stud­ies and the Depart­ment of Music Sci­ence & Art and accepted their first stu­dents in automn 1998.

    There are three inter­de­part­men­tal post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes accord­ing to sen­ate deci­sion (num­ber 9÷18−6÷94).

    Mas­ter in Applied Infor­mat­ics, is the most recent post­grad­u­ate pro­gram. The aca­d­e­mic staff of the Uni­ver­sity includes Fac­ulty mem­bers, spe­cial­ists, teach­ing and research assis­tants and for­eign lan­guage teach­ers. The posi­tion of a Fac­ulty mem­ber requires a Ph.D. degree (or an equiv­a­lent) and orig­i­nal pub­lished research. New Fac­ulty mem­bers are elected on the basis of their aca­d­e­mic qual­i­fi­ca­tions by Fac­ulty mem­bers of the same or higher rank. Fac­ulty mem­bers are aided in their tasks by research and teach­ing assis­tants who are, in some cases, hold­ers of a Master’s degree and con­tinue their doc­toral studies.
