Research

Academic research is the key to development, improvement, growth, evolvement. An institution with strong academic research becomes well respected, reputable and considered among the best schools. Faculty research can be incorporated into the curriculum making it contemporary and modern. Students benefit through research-centered syllabus and through private research in the form of projects, dissertations or thesis. The society benefits through economic enhancement and innovative ideas.

At CBS, research is considered a vital necessity for the future success of the student, the College and the society. It was always among the priorities of the owners to create a Research Centre which would emphasize on current issues both on an international and local level. A center that would provide insight on various topics as an aid to the policymakers. The CBS Research Centre was created in 2019 and has been successfully recognized as a Research entity by Eurostat. It operates under three important pillars: academic, commercial and societal.

Giving Back to the Society: Strong Graduates create Strong Societies

One of the College’s main goals is to contribute to the society. As described before, through high-quality research, the college aims to become an important aid of the state in dealing with problems on the areas of finance and business. Additionally, offering high quality education and qualifications to students will create strong and skilled graduates. These characteristics are the foundations for a strong society and we consider them to be indirect contributions.

All programs have been evaluated by the American Bankers Association (ABA). Students who successfully finish the four-year Bachelor Degree will gain the General Banking Certificate, provided that they have chosen the relevant elective courses. Students who successfully finish the Master of Business Administration (MBA) will also gain the Certificate in Bank Financial Management, again provided that they have chosen the relevant elective courses. In this way, CBS College manages to provide both, an academic diploma and a professional tittle. This is a very significant advantage that CBS College holds over competitors.

Lastly, the Cyprus Union of Bank Employees (ΕΤΥΚ) currently holds 3% of the ownership of CBS. The Union has more than 10,000 members, working as bankers. It is one of the strongest Unions in Cyprus. By participating in the College’s ownership, they are expected to support the College through their connections to banks and the business world.

CBS is the right choice! CBS treats its students and graduates as members of its community. Once part of the CBS community, you will always be part of it.
