Conference & Study Abroad Opportunity
Webster University-Athens is an accredited member of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, welcoming ACBSP members from around the world to Athens for the ACBSP 2014 International Conference. It is also a destination for study aboard programs for colleges and universities around the world throughout the year. The best of these two worlds comes together in this unique conference & study abroad program opportunity offered by Webster University-Athens.
Arrival is on November 22 and departure is on November 30. For schools in the United States, many will be on holiday this week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Students and the accompanying professors will first experience a two-day land excursion to Delphi and Olympia. During this time they will be guided by scholars immersing themselves in the lives of ancient Greeks and their minds filled with the art, politics, culture and mythology that defined Greece.
Day 3 is a trip to Cape Sounion via the Attica coastal road. After passing Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza, all on the tour will visit the most southern point of Attica Cape Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon.
During the dates of the International Conference, students will spend part of their time attending conference sessions where presenters have been informed students will be present and to direct some of their presentations to meet their educational needs. Students will also visit sites in Athens including the Acropolis, the Benaki Museum, the recently opened Acropolis Museum and other archeological museums and sites.
Students attending the program will be housed in shared rooms in specially selected university apartments, in very close proximity to the Athens Campus in the Plaka area of Athens. Apartment housing will include kitchen facilities, air conditioned or fan equipped rooms, laundry facilities and Internet access.
Complete information is available by downloading an informational brochure.
