2016 CIM Honorary Fellows


Honorary Fellows Gala Dinner 2016

CIM Honorary Fellows


The award of an Honorary Fellowship is one of the most prestigious awards that the Business School can bestow. ‘Honorary Fellows; The grant of Honorary Fellowship shall be conferred on such persons of eminence or distinction who are not members as the Council shall in their absolute discretion think fit’. The induction of a steady stream of new Honorary Fellows (one per year) would be a useful ‘profile raiser’ for the Business School.

Selection Process

The Business School ’s Council elects annually as an Honorary Fellow 3-4 individuals that fall within the following categories:

  1. Local Executive with significant contribution to the Cyprus Business world
  2. Foreign Executive with significant contribution to the Cyprus Business world
  3. CIM alumnus who has excelled professionally


In making recommendations for Honorary Fellowship, the Business School ’s Council will take account of any restrictions imposed by the Honorary Award Regulations, potential conflicts of interest or reputational issues.  Please note that current staff of the Business School and members of the Business School ’s Council are not eligible for Honorary Fellowship, until they retire.

Who can nominate Honorary Fellows?

Any member of the Business School ’s Council can make a nomination. All nominations are considered and screened in confidence by the ‘Honorary Fellows Committee’ and those nominated should not be made aware by their nominee that they have been put forward for an award.
The ‘Honorary Fellows Committee’ composes of:
  1. CIM Director-General
  2. CIM Deputy-Director
  3. Business School ’s Council President
  4. Business School ’s Council Oldest Member

How and When to Nominate

Who makes decisions on Honorary Fellowships?

Nominations for Honorary Fellowships are put forward to the Business School ’s Council by the ‘Honorary Fellows Committee’. The HF Committee’s recommendations are laid before the Business School ’s Council for concurrence, and a final decision is taken by a majority vote. Student Representatives to the Business School ’s Council have not voting right. Successful candidates are invited to receive their awards at the annual CIM Summit. A maximum of four new Honorary Fellows may be elected each year.
