Since its establishment in 1978, CIM has been a pioneer in the Cyprus Tertiary Business Education. At a time when no universities existed in Cyprus, and when Business Education was something alien to most, CIM was offering high quality, internationally-accredited programmes at Bachelor and Master levels.
It is in this pioneer spirit that the Council of CIM decided to authorise us to establish the Cyprus Centre for Business Research, anticipating and responding to another need of society – the need to create and diffuse new knowledge in an ever complex world that demands answers to pressing questions in Business and Management, and to bridge the gap between academia and the business world.
Our team of research fellows – academics and specialists – and associates is well equipped to address the challenges we have set for ourselves, and aware of the responsibilities they undertake. We undertake to spare no effort, to channel enthusiasm for offering real-value insights to practicing managers and academics in Cyprus and abroad, and to be open, inclusive, and congenial to all.
