GIBRALTAR’s new university will signal ‘the nation’s coming of age’, said education minister Gilbert Licudi.
The University of Gibraltar’s four departments include the Faculty of Business, which offers the world’s first courses in Gibraltar law and Gibraltar tax.
The self-financing university will entice undergraduates to enrol on accounting, finance, banking and business management courses.
Lucidi said: “The university will be transformational signalling the coming of age of our nation.
“For the first time we will be a university city, able to attract international students.”
The university is hoping to enhance Gibraltar’s standing as a centre for international business.
Its business school, the Institute of Professional Development and Continuing Education, will also design courses to help local businesses.
