Prominent Educators dedicated to promoting effective knowledge with long term outcomes.

Dr. Aliki Mitsakos, M.D., Ph.D.

Co-founder & Dean, The International Center for Leading Studies

Aliki Mitsakos, born in Athens, Greece, has lived and worked in many countries abroad. She has a career in Medicine and a parallel one in Civil Society, non-formal Education and International affairs, which continues following formal retirement from the Medical practice. An active member of Civil Society, for the past 25 years and more, on issues related to International relations, Security, and Education, with a particular focus on Youth and gender issues, has realized the need for broader interdisciplinary education as the necessary form of education for all citizens who wish to be constructive in their disciplines and societies.
