I graduated from the Athens University of Economics and Business with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. I continued my studies at the University of Nottingham from which I graduated with an MSc in Applied Economics and Financial Economics. My dissertation was on the impact of bank and stock market development on economic growth in both developed and less-developed countries. After I completed my studies, I did an internship in the city of Turin, Italy, in the area of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and entrepreneurship. During my internship, I broadened my knowledge as well as my verbal communication and marketing skills. My writing skills were also enhanced as I wrote an e-book about CSR. The areas that I specialise in are mainly economics, finance, mathematics, statistics, marketing, social issues and entrepreneurship.
