Commenting on the results of the THE WUR by Subject, the Dean of the School of Business, Professor Angelika Kokkinaki noted:

We are gratified by the THE Subject Ranking that recognises the UNIC School of Business as the leading institution in Cyprus, Greece, and the region that lies between the Adriatic Sea and the Levantine Sea. However, I firmly believe that the true essence of the UNIC School of Business transcends numerical rankings.

What truly sets the UNIC School of Business apart is our commitment to excellence in every facet of academic life. Our faculty encourages students to engage in critical thinking and to form their own unique academic or professional trajectories. We promote interdisciplinary studies, particularly the integration of Business and Information Technology.

Our faculty members are consistently generating innovative ideas through rigorous, focused research and engaging in meaningful dialogue with industry professionals. Our dedication to the core mission of research, teaching, and scholarship has elevated the UNIC School of Business to its current prominence. I am confident that our continued commitment will further enhance our reputation and impact in the future.”
