Professional Certification – Prospects
Both in Cyprus and in Greece and other European Union countries, the demand for specialists on European affairs is growing every day. This development is due to the growing role of the EU (and related decisions in Brussels and in institutions in general) in the daily operation of the Member States and the economic, administrative and political life.
The economic crisis has further increased the weight of EU decisions and therefore the deeper knowledge of the ways in which the EU is run and how decisions are made has become a necessary knowledge for every professional and employee both in the private and public field.
Unlike many other similar programmes, this Master of European Governance focuses more on the knowledge and practical skills that the modern civil servant, lawyer, businessman, economist etc. need to obtain in order to successfully compete in the growing international and European environment. Graduates will also be able to effectively seek executive positions in international organizations, large corporations, consultancies, legal and accounting firms, non-governmental organizations, etc.
