University of Nicosia
The School of Business (SBA) is one of Cyprus' major business education resources. We are one of the largest schools in the University. Organizationally, our School consists of the departments of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management, Management and Management Information Systems, and Marketing. The School also includes the graduate MBA Office and the master programmes in Digital Currency, Engineering Management and Shipping & Logistics. We also offer two Doctoral Degrees, PhD and DBA. It also includes the Center for Leisure, Tourism and Sport Research and Development (CLTS) and the Centre for Green Development and Energy Policy (CDG).
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 market place.
Through our programs we aspire to develop competent, entrepreneurial, internationally oriented, and socially responsible managers who can master tomorrow's challenges. Our philosophy towards teaching has enabled us to create an effective and stimulating learning environment. We think that a combination of solid theory, practical case studies and close interaction with industry set the School of Business apart from all other business schools in the region.
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 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.
The School's faculty members are high qualified professionals, as we want to offer the best quality of teaching to our students. Most faculty members are full-time.
We provide both degree and non-credit educational programmes for our range of constituents. Included are undergraduate and graduate; seminars, short-courses, and conferences.
The School's student body is diverse and multicultural and reflects to some extent the demographics of Cyprus and the location of the island. 63 percent of the student body is Cypriot and 37 percent international, with strong European and African representation. Our gender ratio is 60 percent men and 40 women.
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 various student societies. These societies sponsor a number of events like field trips, discussion panels, and prominent guest speakers from the business sector.
LINKS WITH THE INDUSTRY
The School has close ties with the business community and supports it through various units of the university which offer such services as consultancy, business incubation, and training and development. Moreover, this link is also achieved through the School of Business Advisory Board (BSAB). This Board is made up of an honorary group of prominent business executives and University officials that serve as a bridge between our School and the business and professional community. It offers its advice and guidance to ensure that our programs prepare students to become the type of professionals, managers and leaders demanded by our growing and diverse economy. The Advisory Board recognizes that with accession into the European Union, our region's economic prosperity depends, in part, on our graduating business professionals ready to address the challenges before us.
By investing in the School of Business, the Advisory Board members receive a range of benefits. The most important benefit of being a member of the Business School Council is the personal satisfaction received by contributing to the quality education of School of Business Administration students. Additionally, the following exclusive opportunities are offered to all Council members: Visibility and recognition

Management Information Systems (MIS), MBA)
"I had so many high points in my studies here. First, it was connecting with people from all around the world, from India to Lithuania and Russia as well as parts of Africa. A major high point was a particular course, which was the Enterprise Information Systems. I took the course as an independent study. This course helped me develop my skills at SAP Hellas S.A., where I had the opportunity to get certified as an ERP Consultant.
It's wonderful to be graduating. I am going back to SAP to finish my internship and try to get a job there. I am already working on a startup company back home and I am doing some research and creating the infrastructure for the company to succeed."
