ORGANISER

CIM-Cyprus Business School (CIM) was founded in September 1978 and operates in Nicosia and Limassol. As
the first Business School in Cyprus, its main purpose has always been to fill the gap that exists in Cyprus’ tertiary
education by offering high-quality education to in-career individuals. When, in 1978, CIM pioneered by offering
Management and Marketing Degrees in Cyprus, most companies had not yet recognised the importance of
marketing and management in business activity; that corporations have now acknowledged the prominence of the
sciences of marketing and of management is a testament to the immense impact CIM has had on business activity
in Cyprus. Since then, CIM has expanded into areas beyond Management and Marketing, offering Diplomas and
Degrees in Banking, Insurance, Finance, Shipping, European Studies, Financial & Computer Studies and an MBA.
Running evening-only classes, CIM combines theory and practice. CIM has won the respect of the Cyprus business
world and, with more than 5,000 alumni in Cyprus and abroad, it is the leading Business School in the country
