Welcome to the University of Limassol! 

Welcome to the newest University in Cyprus, founded on the solid foundations laid down by one of the oldest and most reputable business schools in the country, the Cyprus International Institute of Management (CIIM), the alma mater of about 3,000 Cypriot and foreign graduates.

We live in a rapidly changing world. Advances in technology and globalization, on the one hand, and global upheavals, such as wars, pandemics, and economic crises on the other, are affecting the way we live and work. New opportunities are being created and new challenges emerge. Responding to rapid change, competing in a larger market, and managing uncertainty all require knowledge and skills but above all critical thinking, creativity and values for a successful career and a meaningful life in the new environment.

The purpose of the University of Limassol (UoL) is to push the boundaries of knowledge through frontier research and inspiring education in a dynamic learning environment, where students can develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in an ever-changing world and to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. We aim to prepare our students for active citizenship and for their future careers, supporting their personal development, creating a broad advanced knowledge base and stimulating research and innovation.

Our mission is to provide an inspiring teaching and learning environment that motivates students to explore, challenge, create, and lead. An equally important mission of UoL is to generate and disseminate new knowledge through frontier research and innovation contributing to the solution of social problems and advancement of sustainable development for humanity.

Our vision for UoL is to excel and grow to become a premier international University in the region and beyond, a catalyst for innovation and change, known and chosen for its educational quality, frontier research, innovation and transformative culture in addressing and solving real-world problems. Our core values are: integrity; freedom of thought and expression; excellence in everything we do; innovation and value creation; sustainability and humanism. We consider diversity a strength and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment where all members of our community feel valued and respected.

UoL has inherited from CIIM and perfected ten graduate programs including its flagship MBA and nine specialized Master of Science programs ranging from Human Resource Management to Business Intelligence & Data Analytics, from Educational Leadership to Public Sector Management and from Financial Services to Green and Digital Management.

Building on three decades of CIIM’s educational experience in business, finance and information technology, UoL has designed and offers three undergraduate programs of exceptional quality: Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Bachelor of Science in Economics with significant common core modules between them to ensure that our graduates acquire both the breadth and depth that the new world in which they will live and work requires. In addition, two doctoral programs, the PhD in Management and the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) are in the process of accreditation.

With a top-notch international faculty, a diverse student body, innovative curricula, interactive teaching and learning methods, and high international admissions and graduation standards, UoL competes with the finest universities for the best and the brightest students.

UoL is based in Limassol, the cosmopolitan and fastest growing city of Cyprus, the base of hundreds of international companies in technology, finance, professional services, real estate, tourism and shipping. Limassol, stretching from the Mediterranean coast to the foothills of the Troodos mountain range and situated between the ancient towns of Amathus and Curium, has archaeological sites going back 10,000 years and a complete range of opportunities and facilities for hobbies, sports and recreation including sea sports to mountain skiing.

I invite you to consider UoL for your studies, whether at the undergraduate or postgraduate level. It will be one of the best investments you will ever make; one that will enable you to do remarkable things in your life!
