About

Profile of the Public Relations, Advertising and Marketing programme from University of Nicosia:

Students will be provided with:

  • A base of communication, advertising and marketing courses as a solid foundation
  • An in-depth knowledge of theory
  • Skills and techniques needed to practice
  • An adequate preparation for an entry-level qualification
  • A breadth of additional business and communication courses, allowing students to function effectively in the broader areas of corporate communication
  • A strong element of general education that makes our graduates well rounded individuals in addition to well trained specialists

Students are further encouraged to develop:

  • A sensitivity to the social, economic, political, ethical and technological environments within which organizations operate and compete
  • Skills in systematic planning, argumentation, communication of ideas, teamwork and intercultural understanding and the application of creativity

The final aim is to enable graduates to enter successfully the labor market or to continue studies in graduate schools.

The programme has both an academic and a market orientation. It focuses on examining and analyzing the latest developments and research in the academic fields of public relations, advertising and marketing, but at the same time it reflects the needs and requirements of the industry for practitioners.

Career Prospects:

Career opportunities are available both in the public sectors and the private sectors. For example, some of our graduates work as public relations practitioners at various offices within the government such as the Public Information office of the Cypriot government and others are employed by private companies where students can combine interests in public relations and in other fields such as technology (PrimeTel and Cablenet) or environmental issues (Greedot Cyprus).

Still, there are also companies and agencies specializing in the areas of marketing/media research and consultancy and some graduates choose to work in this sector. Typical examples will be Dilemma Advertising Agency and A. C. Nielson, Cyprus (AGB).

Access to Further Studies:

Graduates of the programme can be accepted into Second Cycle degrees (Master’s Degree).
