The course material can be organised in four basic parts:
Ι. Introduction – Basic concepts: Sets, Functions, Series, Limits, Elementary analytical geometry.
ΙΙ. Differential Calculus of Univariate and Multivariate Functions
ΙΙΙ. Integral Calculus
ΙV. Applications of Mathematics in Economics and Management Science

Introduction to Marketing
The course “Introduction to Marketing” introduces the student to the basic concepts and principles of the Marketing science contributing to the acquisition of useful knowledge through the theoretical review of the topic and the analytical presentation of the relevant practical issues, giving particular emphasis in the connection of theory with practice. Indicatively, the course includes the modules of shopper behaviour (business and consumer), Marketing research, product, distribution, pricing and integrated Marketing communications strategies, Marketing environment, segmentation, targeting and positioning, etc. Finally, in the context of the course it is attempted to introduce students to the Marketing scientific research by presenting and discussing its contribution both to theoretical and practical level.
The course introduces the basic principles of Accounting, its fundamental concepts and its basic tools, which are essential for the study, understanding and mapping of economic events within the accounting system. It presents the methodology of General Accounting and the usefulness of the double-entry system, the completion of the accounting cycle as well as the process of preparing the financial statements, which are tools both for the sound financial presentation of the data and for future decisions of the enterprises.
The purpose of the course "Accounting I" is for the student to understand the usefulness of accounting, the concepts that govern it, and to familiarize himself with the tools it uses. Emphasis is placed on issues of accounting theory and practice for learning the processes of the accounting cycle, the purpose of the accounts and their usefulness, the preparation of the basic financial statements - the income statement, the balance sheet and the cash flow statement, as well as their importance and interpretation.
Upon completion of the course the student will be able to:
- Understand basic Accounting principles and practices
- Record the financial events based on the above accounting principles
- Implement the full accounting circuitry
- Prepare the required financial statements
- Present basic interpretations of financial results
