The Cyprus Institute of Marketing (CIM) has been operating in Nicosia since 1978 and in Limassol since 1984. The Institute, which is the first Business School in the country, was set up in order to promote the science of marketing in Cyprus and abroad. During the past 34 years CIM has evolved into a major international centre for the development of marketing science, providing the opportunity to more than 5,000 students to acquire qualifications that are specifically marketing-orientated.
Ever since our establishment, CIM has been a pioneer in the teaching of adult, in-career people. Offering exclusively evening classes to working individuals, we attract those who, for one reason or another, missed on the opportunity to study right after graduating from school but who have always had the will to learn and further their careers. The CIM has thus rightly been characterised as a ‘Second-Chance Institution’; as we like to say here, Learning Never Ends.
Our programs are unique in that they combine theory and practice, giving students the necessary tools for securing employment or for getting promoted at their existing job. We offer high-quality education and expert training tailored according to your individual needs, be they your personal career, family or any other commitments. Our distinguished lecturers and tutors begin with an initial evaluation and then structure a learning program around your specific strengths and weaknesses, guiding you towards pre-set and pre-agreed goals.
In an increasingly competitive market, the CIM offers excellent, high-quality education that combines theory and practice, helping you jumpstart or further your career.
The Cyprus Institute of Marketing is the first Institution in Cyprus to enjoy Institutional Approval by two leading British Universities!
The University of West London and The Cyprus Institute of Marketing are collaborative partners in the delivery of the BA (Hons) Business Studies with Marketing (3 years) and the BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance (3 years) Degree programmes.
London South Bank University and The Cyprus Institute of Marketing are collaborative partners in the delivery of the MBA (Non-Experience, 15 Months FT / 30 Months PT).
35 years ago, the Cyprus Institute of Marketing launched its pioneering campaign of offering degrees in Marketing in Cyprus. Over the course of the years, we have broadened our horizons, offering various degrees in fields other than marketing - CIM offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in areas such as Tourism, Shipping, Insurance and Banking. It is now considered as one of the leading Business Schools in Cyprus and in Europe.
Since our establishment, our main aim at the CIM has been to fulfil a gap in the market by offering specialised programmes to mature, in-career students. Applying its slogan ‘Learning Never Ends’ to its full extent, CIM programmes are designed around the needs and characteristics of individuals who may not have had the opportunity to earn a prestigious degree earlier in life. We are thus rightly characterised as the ‘second-chance institute’.
CIM has won the respect and recognition of the Global Market. Our graduates are readily sought after by corporations for employment and it is with great satisfaction that we see so many of our alumni holding key positions across the industry, both in Cyprus and abroad.
CIM has achieved a lot in the past 35 years and we are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead. The purpose of our journal The Market is to keep our members, alumni, associates and friends up to date with the latest developments in the science of marketing, but also to create a community, bringing everyone that supports the goals and mission of CIM together.
