Academic Council

The Academic Council of the Cyprus International Institute of Management is an international advisory body composed of notable academics, including former and current Deans of some of the world’s leading universities and business schools. It acts as an independent, self-renewed body “representing” the international academic community that co-founded the Institute. The Academic Council’s primary role is to advise the Board of Governors and the Institute’s Director on matters relating to educational standards, quality control and the academic development of the School. It also assesses, through the review undertaken by the External Examiner that it appoints, the quality of CIIM programmes, recommends upgrades to these programmes based on international developments, and provides advice on the development of new postgraduate offerings.
