Our school participation in the Economics Olympiad

The Economics Olympiad is an international competition of economics knowledge addressed to high school students in Greece and abroad and hopes to contribute to the further development of students’ competences and knowledge in economics.

The Economics Olympiad is held every year in the Czech Republic and in Slovakia, while this year it is held for the first time in Greece, Hungary, the United Kingdom and in other countries.

In Greece, the competition is organised for the first time during the school year 2020-2021 by KEFIM-Markos Dragoumis n collaboration with the Czech Institute of Economics Education (INEV), organiser of the International Economics Olympiad. The Economics Olympian is organised with the approval of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, the support of the General Secretariat of Public Diplomacy and for Greeks Abroad of the Ministry of External Affairs of Greece and the schools of the Greeks Abroad, and the support of the National Bank of Greece.

The Economics Olympiad has the following objectives:

  • Boosting high school students’ interest in economic matters.
