Double Congratulations to Nikolas Vasilakis, IBDP Class of 2023
- Admitted to Erasmus University of Rotterdam and
- Representing Greece in the International Economics Olympiad
Recent IB Diploma Programme graduate, Nikolas Vasilakis, has two important reasons to celebrate: admission to the Econometrics and Operations Research programme, one of the most demanding degrees at Erasmus University of Rotterdam, and representing Greece in the International Economics Olympiad in Bratislava this September.
Nikolas’ acceptance to this very competitive degree programme at Erasmus University of Rotterdam came as no surprise as he was consistently one of our top academic performers in Economics and Mathematics. He decided to then participate in local level competition with more than 3000 high school students from across Greece, qualifying for the regional rounds, and finally reaching the national finals where only 50 students take part. After a series of written exams, Nikolas made it to the next stage with only 10 qualifiers and following oral examinations, Nikolas reached the top 5 nationally, which secured his place on the national Greek Team that will represent the country in the international event in Slovakia between 5-6 September.
We wish you every success in your studies, Nikola and know you will make Greece proud at the International Economics Olympiad this fall!
