Welcome Message from the President
This is the tenth year of the International Hellenic University’s existence. During this period, the IHU has created nineteen postgraduate programmes, fresh, dynamic and forward-looking.
The programmes are taught in an academic environment where the knowledge is researched, the knowledge is taught, the knowledge is disseminated within and outside Greece.
Our central target from the first instant has been academic excellence. How to achieve this was and is the major task and challenge as it involves the human element. How to recruit those with the greatest potential; to motivate them; to inspire them. Not only the academics but the administrators and professionals, who should work with dedication and harmony towards excellence, each in his or her own capacity. I believe we have achieved a lot in this respect.
Those elements, however, are only part of the equation. Another lively part of the equation are the students, our partners in the knowledge process. We have been privileged to recruit very promising students from thirty-eight countries, who have become very able graduates of the university. We are now in a good position to expand the numbers of international students coming from outside Greece and this is one of our immediate goals.
The final part of the equation is the wider community, the end recipient of our services. We have focused on academic excellence and on our students. Now we are in a position to show our third partner, the wider community, what we have achieved and what more we can do in partnership. It is my privilege to invite you to read the pages before you, either as a potential student or as a potential recruiter of our graduates, either as a parent or as someone who will be happy to see proof that positive developments are always taking place in our societies.
With my best wishes,
Professor Costas Th. Grammenos
