International exposure:
The international thrust of CIIM proceeds from an educational philosophy that integrates the latest concepts and theory in management with knowledge of their practical application. A more complete learning takes place when students are able to put classroom concepts and theories into practice. This philosophy is embodied in the intensive use of team exercises, case studies, simulation games and “live” projects, which apply classroom instruction to realistic business situations. CIIM’s faculty is international, drawn from many leading educational institutions around the world. They bring with them not only an expert knowledge of their discipline but also a diversity of ideas and cultures, which reflects the multinational character of today’s business environment. CIIM students are hand-picked from around the world for their outstanding academic qualifications, work, experience, and leadership qualities.

Location:
The Institute is located in very pleasant surroundings in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, a city of 280,000 and the island\'s administrative and business centre. It is about 30 miles from Larnaca, one of the island\'s international airports and a major beach resort. Cyprus\' location in the east Mediterranean at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia, and its easy accessibility by sea and air (1,500 scheduled flights per month) give it a strategic advantage as a regional centre for business, shipping and finance. The island\'s time zone is exactly seven hours behind Tokyo and seven hours ahead of New York. An executive stationed in Cyprus can therefore work with the Far East and North America on the same day, during normal working hours. About 1,000 offshore enterprises and banks have their regional headquarters on the island, including such multinationals as Johnson and Johnson, Pepsico, NCR, Bull, Hoffman La Roche, Tetra Pak, Reuters and Associated Press
