Host University

Deree College, the undergraduate division of the American College of Greece, is the oldest and largest private American-sponsored college in Europe. Its two campuses offer programs in Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, and Continuing Education. Learning at Deree College does not stop in the classroom; a variety of extracurricular activities and cultural events foster social and cultural development of all students. A new campus building was erected in 1993 near the business center of Athens in order to further enhance the education of business students. Deree College offers a Bachelor of Science in Business administration, with majors in Accounting and Finance, Computer Information Systems, International Business and European Affairs, Management, and Marketing. The campus is rich with cultural diversity: over 3,500 students from over 40 countries are enrolled in undergraduate programs.

Destination

Athens, a city of four million people, is a historic city surrounded by three mountains: Mount Parnitha, Mount Penteli , and Mount Hymettos. Athens is always buzzing with activity. Archeological attractions, concert halls, sports arenas, museums, and restaurants among other things, keep the city alive and thriving, but one can find solitude in neighborhoods such as Plaka and Mets. Athens is a fascinating blend of modern and historic, a city where you can get off the Athens Metro and then walk through history at the Agora or on the Acropolis. Since Athens hosted the first modern Olympics in 1896, many aspects of the city have been modernized.
