CYQAA is the competent Authority responsible for ensuring the quality of higher education in Cyprus and for the support of the processes provided by the relevant Legislation, for the continuous improvement and upgrading of higher education institutions and their programmes of study.

The EIMF Academic School only offers programmes that have first undergone the CYQAA ‘Programme of Studies’ evaluation procedure and have been successful in securing the relevant accreditation.


A professional qualification can help a prospective job candidate or working professional acquire the industry specific skills that will set them above the competition, while demonstrating their commitment to training and career development to their prospective or current employer. At EIMF, we have obtained accreditation status from some of the financial services industry’s most established and esteemed bodies, ensuring that participants attending our accredited programmes receive industry specific qualifications that will help them excel in their respective fields. You can read more on the importance of professional qualifications and development here.
