ICMA Centre travel to Greece for British Council Education Fair
On Friday 6th November 2009, the ICMA Centre travelled to Athens, Greece to take part in the British Council UK Education Fair. These fairs are held in numerous locations across the world, and are excellent opportunities for E.U and overseas students to find out more about studying in the UK.
Represented by Dr George Alexandridis, Lecturer in Finance at the ICMA Centre and Verity Altomare, Marketing Assistant; it was the first time that the ICMA Centre had attended a British Council fair. Almost 50 institutions from the UK attended the event and over the course of the weekend, the ICMA Centre was inundated by requests of prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students, keen to learn more about the ICMA Centre and what it can offer. The fair proved to be extremely beneficial and the ICMA Centre plans to attend similar events in the future.

Many recent graduates as well as others back from the Class of 1995 attended the event. Michael Angelakis. President of the ICMA Centre Hellenic Alumni was thrilled with the success of the reunion and said ' Greek Alumni now employed by all major banks, brokerage firms and multinational companies had the chance once again to meet each other, chat and exchange business views and ideas. This event proved to be a great opportunity for networking during the current challenging financial and economic time'
