Within the framework of their strategic partnership, KPMG in Cyprus and the Cyprus Institute of Marketing (CIM), offered two academic scholarships in total, thus giving the opportunity to two fellow citizens to acquire an undergraduate or a postgraduate degree.
The process aroused significant interest. Following thorough examination of the large number of applications, KPMG and CIM decided to offer the scholarships as follows:
CIM excels in the local academia for over 40 years and is considered to be one of the most prominent educational institutions in the island for management studies. The two programmes are taught in English and are delivered in evening classes. The programmes are accredited by SEKAP/KYSATS. Based on economic criteria, the successful candidates may also receive state sponsorship.
The scholarships form part of a series of actions implemented by the KPMG Science Shop, an initiative that promotes and implements community-based participatory research while collaborating with universities, research centres and the society. The KPMG Science Shop is established by KPMG in Cyprus and is funded by the European Commission through the Scishops.eu project, under Horizon 2020.
Antonis Bargilly, Board Member, Head of Strategy, Customer & Operations Services at KPMG in Cyprus and Partner in Charge of the KPMG Science Shop project, said: “Congratulations to the winners; I wish them best of luck with their studies. Offering these scholarships in collaboration with CIM, forms a practical example of collaboration between the society, the research community and the business world. Rest assured that more similar initiatives will follow in the near future”.
