BCA Group is one of the largest educational institutions in Greece, offering Bachelors and Masters Degrees in the fields of Business Management, Maritime Studies, Hotel Management and Psychology.
Founded in 1971, BCA has formed a level of quality and study conditions unique among Greek educational institutions. This is the reason why various UK higher educational institutions, such as Plymouth Business School, University of Huddersfield, London Guildhall University and London Metropolitan University, have trusted and collaborated with BCA in the course of its 45-year long history, through validating or franchising bachelor’s and master’s courses running in Greece. BCA was also one of the first educational institutions with branches in Geneva and Rome, and the first private college offering validated programmes in Greece from UK Universities through exclusive agreements.
With over 1000 students and more than 9,000 alumni, BCA has developed a balanced mix of curricula, combining both theory and practice. Each student has the ability to learn from successful professionals of the industry, receiving mentorship and guidance in order to gain the appropriate entrepreneurial mindset which lies at the core of the BCA philosophy.
Gaining from thousands of years of specific expertise in the fields of Maritime training and Hospitality spirit, while also drawing on the entrepreneurial talent inherent in the Greek psyche, all programs of study aim to create the visionary leaders that the rising global economy needs.
BCA is delighted to announce its partnership with Plymouth University, for all its academic programs starting September 2015.
Plymouth University, “which aims to become the enterprise university”, is an ambitious, world-class institution and one of the largest universities in the UK with over 30,000 students and around 3000 staff. Plymouth University is officially a world class and award winning university. In the past year the University has been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a British university. In the global 100 universities under 50 years of age, Plymouth University is in the top ten UK universities, and now ranks 50th in the Sunday Times league table of all universities.
