: the case of a private University in Cyprus

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Business (DBA)


This piece of work is a case study of a university in Cyprus (hereafter called the Institution) in the light of the Institution’s statement that it “challenges and supports students in order to facilitate the development of their intellectual, emotional, recreational and career growth” (Anon 2018b). The study, via semi-structured interviews, explores initially, the way that twelve students coming from different disciplines perceive the concept of the whole person, and the way this perception influences their experience of the holistic approach of the Institution. Further on, the study, again via semi-structured interviews, examines how twelve members of academic staff in four Schools of the institution apply such an approach in the programs of study.
