The ceremony was attended by more than 100 guests, including local members of the House of Representatives, local Mayors and Vice Mayors, the Bishop of Amathus, officials from the Ministry of Education and many business leaders, especially from Limassol as well as former graduates and current students. The official opening marks a new beginning for CIIM in Limassol, where it is aimed that its Master programmes will have a far stronger impact on the Cypriot scene, particularly in the Limassol and Paphos districts. By this new strategy shift for an even larger presence in Limassol, CIIM hopes to further extend its presence not only in Limassol but on a pan-Cyprian base and offer professionals tried and tested programme of excellence at the Masters level, with a focus now from Limassol, as well as keeping its traditional Nicosia base. Through its Limassol presence, CIIM hopes to extend its programmes to the large ex-patriate communities that live and work in the Limassol and Paphos Districts, as well as make it far easier for the many Cypriot residents of these districts who may find the Limassol location more convenient than travelling to Nicosia.

The CIIM officially inaugurated its new specially renovated building in Limassol on May 30th, which was opened by H.E. the President of the Republic, Mr Nikos Anastasiades.
