ΠΑΝΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΙΟ ΠΕΛΟΠΟΝΝΗΣΟΥ
Basic Info in English

The Department of Accounting and Finance was established by the Presidential Decree 200/1999 (Gazette of the Government 179 Α΄) and it began accepting student since the academic year 1999 – 2000. The Department was part of the School of Management and Economics of the Technical and Educational Institute of Peloponnese. With the implementation of the Law 4610/2019 (Gazette of the Government 70/07-05-2019) the Department of Accounting and Finance (located in Kalamata) was integrated to the University of the Peloponnese and along with the Department of Business and Organization Administration constitute the School of Management of the University of the Peloponnese.

In an ever intensively globalized and competitive academic environment the Department of Accounting and Finance of the University of the Peloponnese offers to its students updated and state-of-the-art programmes which adopt all the academic and educational developments that emerge globally. The principal aim of the undergraduate programme in Accounting and Finance is to provide its students with  all the necessary and significant knowledge and skills which will give them the competitive edge to follow either a successful career working in top Greek and multinational companies or to continue their studies at the graduate and doctorate programmes in well known, and respected Universities in Greece and/or abroad.

The recently updated programme of studies is consisted of both core courses and specialization courses. Courses of fundamental background cover a wide range of topics that include quantitative analysis, business administration, economic theory, regulatory and supervisory framework that governs the financial markets and the financial institutions’ operation domestically and globally. In addition, the undergraduate programme offers a good number of courses that allow the students to specialize either in the field of Accounting or in the field of Finance. The programme of studies is updated frequently to encompass the new development in research and educational developments that take place globally in the areas of Accounting and Finance. The undergraduate programme is focused, firstly, to provide students the theoretical background in both Accounting and Finance fields, and secondly, to educate and train the programme’s students to use the quantitative skills in studying topics from a wide range of applications. Additionally, the Department of Accounting and Finance has fully equipped laboratories for educational and research purposes for the needs of both the undergraduate and graduate students. These laboratories are supervised by specialized personnel which provide support in the applied courseworks and tutorials run by the members of staff. Finally, the students have access to several international databases that offer necessary accounting and financial data crucial in the conduction of state-of-the art research which among others lead to high quality undergraduate and graduate thesis. The Department also offers the opportunity to the students to study abroad for one semester though the Erasmus + programme.

Given the nature of the studies that the programme offers, it is worthwhile to note that after long-term and co-ordinated efforts of the academic staff, the Department of Accounting and Finance has come to the agreement with several professional bodies, most importantly with CFA Institute the leading professional body in Financial Analysis.
