Crandall University signs articulation agreement with College of Business Studies in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Moncton – Crandall University (CU) is pleased to announce the signing of an articulation agreement with the College of Business Studies (CBS) in Nicosia, Cyprus.

This agreement would see students at CBS complete the first two years of a four-year International Bachelor of Commerce (IBCom) degree in Cyprus and the last two years at CU.

This is the second articulation agreement signed in 2018; the first was earlier this year with a university in India. Crandall University has begun an initiative for recruiting students from around the world. Currently there are students from 21 different countries represented at CU.

Dr. Dannie Brown, Dean of International Academic Programs at CU said, “This agreement with CBS creates a great opportunity for Crandall to increase its student population in a time of declining domestic enrolments, and to provide students from CBS a unique Canadian educational experience.” Students who complete the IBCom at Crandall are then eligible to apply for the Post Graduation Work Permit offered by the Government of Canada.

Andreas Kizourides, Director of Administration and Finance at CBS added, “We welcome the opportunity to work with Crandall University in implementing this forward-thinking partnership, as together we serve the educational interests and needs of students who wish to study in Canada.”

In addition to the IBCom, CU offers a Master of Organizational Management specifically designed for the international market, with an intake in January and again in September. These programs, plus others that are still in development, are intended to provide pathways for students from around the world to come to Canada.
