CIIM, Cyprus, and RISEBA, Latvia: expanding the boundaries of management education

Riga based University of Business, Arts and Technology (RISEBA) and CIIM – Cyprus International Institute of Management have entered into an agreement on the exchange of students and faculty. Both of the organisations have a significant number of international students and with the new inter-organisational partnership they hope to broaden the geographical horizons of management education between the Baltics and Southeast Mediterranean.

The partnership resulted from the dialogue enabled by CEEMAN – Central and East European Management Development Association, as both institutions are a part of the network, with CIIM being the first and only accepted member of the association representing Cyprus.

During the recent visit of RISEBA representatives to Cyprus further steps in the cooperation were identified with the special emphasis on the management education related to preparing human resources for the current and future challenges as well as developing the skills for the digital transformation – the focus areas of both organisations.
