Why should I study here?

Founded in 1971, BCA has established a level of quality and study conditions unique among Greek educational institutions. BCA was also one of the first educational institutions with branches in Geneva and Rome, and the first private colleges offering validated programmes in Greece from UK universities through exclusive agreements.

What are the admissions criteria?

BCA uses rolling admissions, but be sure to apply in time to complete the visa process.  Along with the application, students should submit transcripts or diplomas, recommendations, a copy of their passport, and English proficiency scores (if from a non-anglophone country or high school).  An interview is also part of the process.

What is student life like?

BCA has acquired a state-of-the-art building, to which all the departments and activities will be transferred. It is an architectural jewel in Ambelokipi, of 4,100 square meters, designed by Alexandros Tombazis and reconstructed by Thanasis Chochlidakis. The renovation work has already started, and in September we will welcome you to our new sophisticated premises. The fact that BCA has basketball and soccer teams is probably predictable. These are the most popular sports, and it is natural for many students to be interested. The fact that these teams have won first place in the inter-college championships is also predictable. The students at BCA are serious about anything they do and always want to stand out! 

It is a known fact that athletics builds the body and the mind. That is why sports activities at BCA do not stop; each year they organize tournaments in paintball, bowling, billiards, and trips for sailing, rafting, and even winter skiing.

Scholarships & Funding

The school offers outside scholarships and its own scholarship fund. More info on available aid is under the heading, "Scholarship & Financial Support Fund," linked here.

Housing options.

BCA collaborates with a well-established network of real estate agents located in the wider area of each of our campuses, responsible for finding suitable properties compatible with our students’ needs and financial resources. This service is coordinated by the Student Services Department and addresses mainly students coming from abroad and other regions of Greece.

Dining information

Additional notes.

Business College Athens programs are validated by Plymouth University (UK). Validation and accreditation are essential factors to look at when considering a college in Greece.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
