OUC students participated in an insightful discussion with C. Lagarde and C. Herodotou

An open discussion between the President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde and the Governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus (CBC) Constantinos Herodotou with approximately 100 students from Cypriot universities was held with great success on October 4, 2022, at the premises of the CBC. Open University of Cyprus students from our undergraduate programmes “Business Administration” and “Economics”, together with students from our Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme, took part in the discussion that was held under the title “Open Dialogue with Students”.

President Lagarde and Governor Herodotou had an open question and answer session with the students, covering a wide range of current topics that are of interest to the students and the civil society at large. The discussion was broadcasted live on the CBC's YouTube channel, and the entire discussion is available:

The involvement of Open University of Cyprus students in such high profile and relevant for the programmes of study events enhances the student learning experience and contributes to the nurture and development of important professional skills, such as critical thinking, effective communication, and taking initiative.
