Over the years, the Department of Music Studies (D.M.S.) of the Ionian University has developed a large network of international co-operations, ensuring its representation in the most important international forums, in order to follow the developments concerning the curricula on employability and entrepreneurship in the field of music studies.
As part of its strategic planning, the Department of Music of the Ionian University aims in the near future to upgrade its presence in the wider geographical area of the Mediterranean and Black Sea by developing strategic partnerships with institutions of neighboring countries.
Since 1999, the D.M.S. has hosted over 180 visiting academics from universities and music academies abroad, which is corresponding to 12 visiting academics per year. Equally, every year, 30% of its teaching staff is visiting on professional grounds various Academic Research Centers, Conservatories, Music Academies and Universities abroad. Parallel to that, the Ionian University Summer Music Academy, established in 2002, has long been a permanent meeting place for international renowned artists in Greece.
