Not only were the professors excellent at explaining, making their courses attractive and understandable, but they also provide students with a practical overview and sharing of their expertise.

One of the positive aspects of this university and this master programme is that our professors do not only have a strong academic background, they also have a firm grasp of what is going on in the professional world and so we learn many things that cannot be found in text books. Furthermore, we are given the opportunity to attend many seminars organised by the university itself and go on interesting field trips related to our field of study. Overall I am satisfied with this programme and believe it is helping me build a stronger educational foundation.
Studying at the International Hellenic University (IHU) was a very valuable experience. I was part of the beginning for the M.Sc. in Environmental Management & Sustainability, with enthusiastic professors and students from around the world. IHU is a university with a multidisciplinary approach and an international mindset. It not only powered me with knowledge but also prepared me to later compete in an international environment, with classes and deliverables in English. This stimulating academic environment and the invaluable support and guidance of Dr. Iosif Botetzagias formed a productive setting for preparing my thesis. The goal was to further our understanding of recycling in Greece and make an original scientific contribution to the subject, coupled with practical recommendations. Very happy to see the effort rewarded and our paper receiving the “2017 Award for Most Cited Paper” from the Resources, Conservation and Recycling (RCR) journal [Botetzagias, I., Dima, A. F., & Malesios, C. (2015). Extending the theory of planned behavior in the context of recycling: The role of moral norms and of demographic predictors. Resources, Conservation and Recycling, 95, 58-67].
