Deloitte awards scholarship for studies at IHU

The International Hellenic University and Deloitte Greece announced their strategic collaboration at a Press Conference on Tuesday 8 December 2015.

The collaboration will provide, amongst other projects, the organization of common educational activities via workshop seminars and summer-schools, the development of collaborative research, activities within the framework of consultancy projects and students’ dissertations, the joint submission of proposals to national and international research and development programmes and the exchange of views for the improvement and harmonization of the educational process with the modern demands of the job market and businesses.

Furthermore, a series of seminars designated exclusively for the Executive MBA students and graduates are the Deloitte Business Seminar Series, which are delivered by Senior Deloitte’s Executives. These seminars will provide know-how and business best practices in topics such as consultancy, taxation, financial auditing, investment motivation and governance.

This collaboration establishes a new basis for the possibility of obtaining work experience for students via work placements ̶ as Deloitte Greece intends to provide support, via the consultancy - mentoring of students of the International Hellenic University. Consultancy will take place with regards to start-ups and new business projects for innovation contests and pitching events.

“Without a doubt, the strategies used to link the academic community with the business world play an important role both in the development of education and business and also in the country’s economic growth”, says Dimitris Koutsopoulos, CEO of Deloitte. ”We are proud to be joining forces with the International Hellenic University in an effort to respond to current requirements, to support students by providing them with the appropriate skills before they enter the job market and also by offering them employment opportunities”.

Professor Costas Th. Grammenos, CBE, DSc, President of the Governing Board of the International Hellenic University, stated that ”a prerequisite for the survival of Greek public higher education is to approach civil society through the creation of mutually beneficial synergies with the country’s thriving production and business forces. The strategic partnership with Deloitte highlights this need for extroversion and thus, we are looking forward to the significant benefits to the academic and business community, the students and the alumni of the International Hellenic University”.

Talking to ANA-MPA (Athens News Agency – Macedonian Press Agency), Professor Daniel Giamouridis, Dean of the School of Economics, Business Administration and Legal Studies, said, “The strategic partnership announced focuses on three strategic pillars that involve education, training, and research. We have joined forces with Deloitte in order to support the education of our students, alumni, and business executives”. Professor Giamouridis described the strategic partnership as a “major step” for the International Hellenic University that aims to provide academic programmes that are rigorous, current, and relevant to international practice”.

Finally, the IHU student, Ms Anastasia Dimiski, was awarded the Deloitte Scholarship to study at the IHU on the MSc in “Accounting, Auditing, and Financial Management”. The CEO of Deloitte Greece, Mr Koutsopoulos, handed her the Scholarship certificate (see photo).
