The Department of Economics was established in 1985 and began its activities in the academic year 1985-86.

During the period between academic years 1985/86 and 1995/96 it operated in a satellite campus in Agrinio. Since 1996/97 all the teaching and research activities of the Department have been conducted on the main campus in Rio, and from October 1998 it has permanently relocated there, in the Campus of the University of Patras.

The Department offers a full undergraduate program leading to a Bachelors Degree in Economics. The undergraduate program is of a 4-year duration and is organised into 8 semesters.

The Department also runs a taught postgraduate program leading to a Masters or a PhD degree where about 30 students enroll every year.
