I write this article to inform you about the attempted proposal, by the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Culture and Sports, to abolish all Academic Departments of Marketing, through the draft Law 'Athena'. The Greek Minister claims in one of his interviews that Academic discipline of Marketing should not be taught as a "undergraduate program of studies" at higher educational Institutes. Based on the above, the Academic Staff and students of the Department of Commerce and Marketing at Technological Educational Institute of Crete, formed "Save Marketing in Greece" Initiative.
