The CIIM Story
The Cyprus International Institute of Management (CIIM) is a non-profit international business school established in 1990 by a group of business leaders and a team of leading academics representing some of the world’s best business schools. Our aim has been to draw on the best teachers in graduate management education, irrespective of location, making their talent and experience available in Cyprus.
CIIM’s mission is to serve as a centre of excellence in postgraduate management education, continuing executive education and research in local and regional issues of international concern that strengthen the knowledge-based society. It fosters a new generation of managers, entrepreneurs and business leaders, who become catalysts, motivators and accelerators of change and innovation in business and government, in Cyprus, the region and beyond.
To accomplish its mission , CIIM has pioneered the modular educational model. This gives our programmes exceptional flexibility, enabling students to focus on a specific subject within short intensive time periods. This gives a freedom of choice which is particularly suited to the needs of the working student.
CIIM is a highly specialized school, concentrating exclusively on advanced studies in business, management and leadership. In parallel with its flagship MBA programme, CIIM offers an “MBA for the public sector”, its Master in Public Sector Management (MPSM), as well as a number of management related masters degrees.
