University of Nicosia School of Business

Introduction

Our Focus

The School of Business (SBA) is one of Cyprus’ major business education resources. We are the largest school in the University. Organizationally, our School consists of the departments of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Hospitality and Tourism, Management and Management Information Systems, and Marketing. The School also includes both the graduate MBA Office and the Center for Leisure, Tourism and Sport Research and Development (CLTS).

Our Vision

Our School’s vision is to be internationally recognized for our undergraduate and graduate business programmes in preparing leaders and entrepreneurs for success in the global marketplace, particularly in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

Our Success

Not surprisingly, we have been recognized often for our quality programmes and services. In fact, our graduates readily recommend us to their friends, and demand for our degree programs continues to outpace our capacity to accommodate it.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create enduring educational value for our students, for our alumni, and for the business and professional communities we serve:

  • For our students, whom we prepare to succeed in a rapidly changing, technology-driven global business environment;
  • For our alumni, to whom we provide opportunities for continuing professional development and a legacy that appreciates as our excellence grows;
  • For the business and professional communities, to whom we offer knowledgeable graduates, educational programs, research, and collaborative projects.

Our mission is also to further the professional development of our faculty and staff.

Our People

A dynamic force for excellence within Cyprus' private tertiary educational system, our dedicated, multi-campus, full-time faculty amounts to 57 academicians--27 are teaching research faculty (Ph.D. holders) and 30 are special teaching faculty. Additionally, we employ 35 part-time lecturers made up of business professionals, recognized experts in their respective fields.

We provide both degree and non-credit educational programmes for our range of constituents. Included are undergraduate and graduate; seminars, short courses, and conferences.

Our Students

The School’s student body is diverse and multicultural and reflects to some extent the demographics of Cyprus and the location of the island. At the undergraduate level, 69 percent of the student body is Cypriot and 31 percent international, with strong European and Asian representation. At the graduate level the reverse is true, with international students dominating (74% foreign to 26% local). Our gender ratio is 55% men to 45% women. The average age of undergraduates is 23 and for graduate students, 28.

The diversity of the student body has prompted many of our students to be members of organizations along ethnic lines. This cross-cultural mix provides a rich base of views and practices to enhance and expand students’ perspectives for multinational business environments. To take advantage of this expansive potential, the School offers students the opportunity to develop their business acumen through participation in two organizations—the Business Society for undergraduates, and the MBA Society for graduate students. These societies sponsor a number of events like field trips, discussion panels, and prominent guest speakers from the business sector.
