Recognition & Foreword
Global Business University-Europe is a world-class university that has been offering its own Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, Bachelors, and Master programmes for over 25 years.
As the continuation of The Cyprus Institute of Marketing (BVI), GBU-Europe has a track record and a legacy extending over decades and embracing a global family of more than 15,000 graduates.
Our new name reflects our growing ambition and is a more accurate descriptor of an institution offering world-class university-level education, in many different fields of business, and all around the globe.
GBU-Europe is member of a rapidly growing list of associations and membership bodies. Among others, we are members of the Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities (ACEEU); the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI); and the European Association of Distance Learning (EADL).
All of the programmes offered by GBU-Europe have been developed by specialist faculty and industry experts who follow the university’s mantra: to offer knowledge that is applicable and transformative in the real world.
Moreover, our exclusive affiliations with internationally-recognised universities mean that our students graduate with dual degrees. Students graduating with selected GBU-Europe degrees can, at the time of graduation, also be issued equivalent degrees from universities like the International University of Management in Namibia and Rome Business School in Italy – universities globally recognised.
Finally, our progression agreements with top universities mean that GBU-Europe graduates can follow their studies – for Bachelors, Masters, or PhDs – at one of our partner universities. We also have progression agreements with established professional bodies like ABE, meaning that professionals can join GBU-Europe for their studies.
We are committed to being open, transparent, and always honest with our students. Write to ask or call us. We’d love to learn more about you!
