P.A. College is a private Higher Education Institution (HEI) operating in Cyprus since 1983 and has Larnaca as its base-of-operations for easy access from within all other cities in Cyprus and abroad since the Larnaca International Airport is only a few minutes’ drive from the College. The College has applied a strategic decision to operate as a specialist in the field of Business Administration and Business Computing, thus effectively helping to make Cyprus an international business, computing, and management related centre of learning. The provision of exclusively business-related education, has established P.A. College as the leading institution for the future professionals in the business, financial and services industries and the only premier Executive Business School in Cyprus.
The Larnaca based Executive Business School has concentrated its whole curriculum on the fields of accredited Business Administration (accounting, finance, marketing, management, etc.), and IT as applied in business operations. This makes it the only HEI in Cyprus offering degree-level government accredited programmes (Bachelor of Arts with Honours in six specialisations), as well as the unique Business Computing Bachelor of Science with Honours degree programme, the only one of its kind in Cyprus and one of only a few in Europe.
In regards to international accreditation, partnership and collaboration with professional bodies, P.A. College was the first institution in Cyprus whose graduates received the maximum possible exemptions (9 out of 13) towards acquiring the professional qualification of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants). It is also the first private tertiary institution in Cyprus to receive maximum exemptions (12 out of 15) from the most credible professional accounting body of the U.K., the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), as well as from the AIA (Association of International Accountants). P.A. College has developed two unique collaborations of world reach and distinction with renowned international auditing firms.
