The pandemic challenge tests the ability of the state to cope with the new environment of economic uncertainty and unknown duration. In their efforts towards alleviating the implications of Covid-19, local businesses and other social stakeholders undertake specific corporate social responsibility initiatives entailing beneficial results for the society as a whole.
Within the framework of their strategic partnership and in response to the emerging needs of the society, KPMG in Cyprus and the Cyprus Institute of Marketing – The Cyprus Business School (CIM) offered 1 academic scholarship in MBA Shipping, thus giving the opportunity to a fellow citizen to acquire a postgraduate degree. The process aroused significant interest. Following thorough examination of applications, KPMG and CIM decided to offer the scholarship as follows:
CIM excels in the local academia for over 42 years and is considered to be one of the most prominent educational institutions in the island for management studies. The specific postgraduate programme is accredited by SEKAP/KYSATS, is taught in English and the classes are delivered in the evening.
The scholarship offered is part of a series of initiatives implemented by KPMG in Cyprus, which fall under its corporate social responsibility framework. KPMG in Cyprus will continue to be at the forefront of promoting knowledge but also strengthening the synergies between businesses and the research community.
