Erasmus Faculty Mobility

Within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, resident faculty of the Cyprus International Institute of Management can teach at other partner European institutions, professors from other Erasmus institutions can teach at CIIM.

CIIM students can enjoy the latest in management education skills as taught by faculty from other European universities, which strengthens the curriculum’s international component. At the same time CIIM faculty can gain experience and knowledge by teaching at other European institutions and in turn bring back and share this knowledge with the CIIM students.

Incoming Faculty

We are looking forward to receiving requests from faculty from other institutions interested in teaching at CIIM. Learn more about Cyprus on the page Study in Cyprus where you can find more information about studying/teaching in Cyprus as well as other useful links about the island.

CIIM follows the rolling admissions and modular system of education. This means that classes start at any point during the year, therefore the deadline for incoming faculty should be at least 1 month prior to the commencement of the class they are applying to teach.

Faculty members interested in mobility should contact the Erasmus Office for more information.
