Welcome to the MBA in International Trade, Logistics & Procurement!
Congratulations on your decision to pursue the MBA in International Trade, Logistics and Procurement at the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business; the Caribbean's leading business school. As the premier institution for the provision of business and management education, our programmes are specifically geared towards producing world class leaders, capable of delivering effective leadership in any organisation.
The aim of this programme is to bridge the competency gap necessary to meet internationally accredited management standards in the areas of international trade, logistics and procurement so that regional exporters and importers can become more competitive in the global marketplace. This applies to participants from both the private and public sectors and in both the energy and non-energy sectors. The integration of content in logistics, procurement and international trade ensures that participants are provided with the necessary content and experiences to address their development needs along the entire supply chain as they engage in international trade.
The programme will establish a framework for the development of regional clusters and diversification of the economy. It addresses the issues concerning intra-regional trade including balance of payments, especially in the manufacturing sector. Participants will explore topics in market and product diversification in the context of a changing world economy. The programme explores supply chain analytics and how local content fits in the value chain in terms of competition and impact on the bottom line. Participants will engage in workshops on using technology in the facilitation of trade and procurement. The programme is also designed to create efficiency and effectiveness in the entire value chain thereby positively impacting the bottom line for existing companies and for new companies including SMEs.
