Overall Grade Conversion
Stevens School Of Business
Very Good (Upper Second Class)
The Credit rate conversion is established as follows. AUEB is using the European Credit System (ECTS) while Stevens is using the United States credit hours (USCH). The standard conversion 6 ECTS = 3 USCH assumes that a standard full time student load is 15 credit hours (USCH). While this is true at the undergraduate level, the standard load for a graduate student at Stevens is 12 credit hours (USCH) per semester. Thus, the conversion rate between the two Master programs is established at the rate: 2.5 ECTS = I USCH. Therefore, a standard 3 USCH graduate course in US is equivalent with 7.5 ECTS at AUEB.
