The School of Business Administration

Message from the Dean

Business Administration was the starting point of our University.  More than half a century later the Ioannis Gregoriou School of Business Administration of European University Cyprus still goes strong and it is in the process of reinventing itself.  In these testing times, we face the uncertainties of the financial environment and inspired by its past and building foundations for a brighter future.

Our undergraduate programs in business have contributed to deliver fully prepared graduates with the right skills and knowledge. Our graduates have been in the first line of business related professions with an emphasis on accounting, marketing, management, tourism and finance.  Our MBA program, one of the first in the country and certainly one of the most successful has created a new generation of business executives in Cyprus and abroad.

The Ioannis Gregoriou School of Business Administration introduced very innovative programs, some of which are unique in South Eastern Europe, such as the MSc in Occupational Safety and Health. Our new undergraduate programs include fields such as Marketing, Communication and Social Media, Hotel, Tourism and Event Management and Energy Management (Oil & Gas). 

Our aims for 2020 are to become a centre of excellence in specific areas, to reach to the business world, enhance the employability aspect of our graduates and to internationalize further our programs.  We will be working hard to increase our research output in terms of high quality journal publications and citations, books and monographies.  We will be investing on the new realities and opportunities that the recent discovery of hydrocarbons has created. New, interesting, current programs, will be created that will influence the generation that will be ready to manage the changes in the economy and the country.  We already have strong relationships with the local and the international business community, this is evident through the Advisory Boards of our programs, we will try to enhance this further, we are interested to build long lasting relationships of mutual benefit with even more businesses.  We want to listen to the working people and the business leaders and streamline our programs towards becoming compatible with their needs.   We want to develop socially responsible leaders with the capability to solve problems, manage organizations, inspire entrepreneurship and be innovative!

I am confident that with our solid foundations from the past, our commitment to excellence and our quest for new challenges, we will achieve the aims we have set for 2020; certainly the next few years will be very interesting and exciting!
