A new type of business school has been established on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The unique structure of our degree programmes together with modern means of communications make it possible for us to bring faculty from leading business schools in North America and Europe to teach in Cyprus.

CIIM students enjoy the latest in management education skills as taught by faculty from universities such as Harvard, Cambridge, London Business School, Manchester Business School, University College Dublin and others. Here they are integrated into programmes of graduate business studies which rival the best in Europe.


Given the crucial importance today of global business, all of our programmes have an international orientation. Our main aim is to develop managers with a thorough understanding of the international business environment and the factors that shape competition in the world economy.

All of our programmes also have a strong practical bent, placing emphasis on case studies, live company exercises and team work.


Both our MBA and MPSM are internationally accredited. We also offer MScs in Human Resouce Management, an MSc in Finance and Banking as well as an MSc in Educational Leadership Management. All of our programmes have also been accredited by the accrediting agency of the government of Cyprus.


International Office

At CIIM we understand that choosing to study overseas is one of the most important decisions you will make. The International Office will assist you with any queries you may have before you make a decision to apply to CIIM. Feel free to contact any of the International Office staff by email with any queries, or request a phone call to discuss any issues you might be considering. If a CIIM member of staff will be visiting your country soon for an exhibition or other event, you can also request a face-to-face meeting with them.

The International Office provides services that meet and even surpass the needs of international students, from the moment they apply for one of our programmes to the moment they graduate. For students that require a visa, we will advise them and make any necessary arrangements for them. We will make all necessary arrangements for the accommodation of students, and when students arrive in Cyprus, we will arrange for a taxi pick-up and greet service at the airport. Upon arrival at CIIM, students will be introduced to the school and the local culture through a group or personal induction session.

Regular social and cultural events, organized by the International Office and the International Student Club, aim to make students feel at home, while away from home.

The International Office is your first port of call if you have any questions or difficulties; we strive to make the transition to CIIM and Cyprus as smooth as possible.

International Student Club

The International Student Club is a student-managed body. With the support of the International Office, ISC works to accomplish three main objectives:

* to facilitate the adaptation of international students to the CIIM social and academic environment
* to ease the social integration of international students through organizing social events, providing internship and job-search assistance, and building a strong international student alumni network
* to leverage the cultural diversity of international students and contribute to the further development of a global spirit amongst the CIIM community

CIIM has a varied international student composition, so students gain exposure not only to the Cypriot culture but also to the cultures of students from around the world.

International Partnerships

CIIM is active in developing and maintaining links with Higher Education Institutions in Europe and the rest of the world. CIIMs faculty have international experience in teaching and research, and regularly undertake teaching assignments and consultancies abroad.

CIIM supports student exchange through the EU ERASMUS programme for outgoing or incoming students. The ERASMUS exchange programme enables European students who are currently studying at a partner institution in Europe to study at CIIM for one semester, or for CIIM European students to study at one of CIIMs partner institutions for one semester.
