UWI-ALJGSB’s New Postgraduate
The UWI-Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business (Lok Jack GSB) has embarked on a new strategic plan in response to the changes in the tertiary education sector and the wider economy.
In this new Plan, the School’s Postgraduate Academic Portfolio has been consolidated and modified with one (1) MBA programme, three (3) Specialist Masters – Marketing, Finance and Human Resources, and the Masters in Small and Medium Sized Enterprise Management (MSMEM). These are all Part-Time, Blended, programmes with students being able to complete the MBA and the 3 Specialist Masters over a 12-month period whereas the MSMEM will be over 20-months.
Classes for the MSMEM will commence in May 2021 and classes for the other 4 programmes in September 2021. This portfolio of programmes provide a regionally unmatched depth of learning experiences and opportunities for future students to improve their knowledge and skills in management and business, develop their capacity of judgement and also help them become leaders who can continuously face the only certainty in the business environment, change. Our aim is to make sure our students have not only the highest quality of education but also have an amazing and enriching time at the Lok Jack GSB which is prolonged by the quality of our Alumni network. Details on each of these programmes will soon be available on the School’s website.
To facilitate the implementation of this new Plan, we will not be offering any Graduate/Masters programmes in September 2020 and January 2021. However, we continue to offer our Bachelor’s in international and Sustainable Business (BISB) with classes starting in September 2020.
All current students enrolled in respective programmes will be able to complete as scheduled and the preparations for next trimester (September -December 2020) and the new academic year remain unchanged.
This new academic portfolio of programmes is in direct response to market needs, designed to continue our work in the delivery of relevant impactful higher education for the wider Caribbean society.
Our portfolio of Executive Education programmes and work with the corporate sector continue to play a major part in the new strategic plan.
We thank our students, faculty, alumni and other stakeholders for their unwavering support.
