Thanx for redirecting me to this post, however; I have little doubt whether this gentleman is going to study in University of Cyprus or European University of Cyprus. As far as i know, no Nepalese (or even any Asian) is studying in University of Cyprus. It is the only public university here in Cyprus. If he is coming to European University of Cyprus (before: Cyprus College), I would say it is one of the best institution in Cyprus. The education quality is nice, however; the scope after doing mba is not highlighted. All the Nepalese students studying mba prefer to return back to Nepal or apply for another country for further education, because of lack of suitable atmosphere for them to start career here. Unlike America, Canada and Uk, international students are not allowed any work permit after graduation. So, they can't practice what they have studied in Cyprus. Since January 2008, international students are allowed to work 28 hrs/week during class session and 38 hrs/week during holidays. But mba students can't expect to work in managerial position as the level of their education demand. The Cyprus law has strictly restricted students to work in areas like hotels/restaurants, gas stations, food delivery outlets, construction sites and similar centers. So, practicing in a sound financial firm is like a dream for the mba students (non EU citizens). As there are so many mba students in the world, competition among the graduates for the job is high...and I don't think Cyprus mba can meet the challenges that is required by high profile jobs. Again, the lack of job experience matters a lot in this situation. So, I think anyone who wants to study mba in Cyprus look after this condition before making any decison to come here. Any further questions are heartly welcome. Thanks Yadav bro.
