Corporate Administrators Programme

Corporate Administrators Programme


The recent financial upheavals in Cyprus have shaken the confidence of international investors in the sustainability of the economic outlook of the island as a rock-solid site of business in the financial and corporate world.

There is now a greater demand for a need to retain the confidence of various stakeholders in the general business outlook of Cyprus.

The functional role of company administrators is increasingly emerging as one of key instrumental significance in revitalizing the status of Cyprus as a world known centre for international financial and corporate business.

Earlier, the traditional role of a company secretary was limited to providing support to the board of directors and managing administrative affairs of an organization. However, the horizon of their roles and responsibilities has expanded exponentially.

As the position of a company administrator has steadily developed into critical to the effective functioning of a corporate entity so has the demand for this job profile.

In this role, administrators not only hold a high position in the management hierarchy but their job description and role is highly accountable both within and outside one’s organization.
