Internationally Recognized Faculty and Research

The University of Cyprus is currently considered as the premier research and teaching institution in Cyprus.  A significant advantage of University of Cyprus and the School of Economics and Management is the internationally recognized resident faculty who have studied and taught at some of the most prestigious universities in the US and Europe.  A strong research and scholarly culture has developed, manifested in the quality and quantity of publications including articles in leading academic journals, books and chapters, as well as in the presence of innovative teaching programs.  The research activities of the School’s faculty often receive international awards and distinctions.  During the last years the University has had considerable success in attracting external research funding, and has succeeded in acquiring a number of highly prestigious chairs of excellence, two of which belong to our School.  The School’s research activities span all areas of Economics and Business Administration.  A recent addition to our faculty is Professor Pissarides, a Nobel Laureate in Economics for 2010 for his work in economics.
