The UWI-Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business (Lok Jack GSB) continues to be resilient during the COVID-19 outbreak. Effective on March 14, 2020, after the announcement by Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Keith Rowley to close all places of learning, the Business School immediately activated its IT infrastructure to facilitate the transition of face-to-face classes to online for all students and Executive Education participants and actioned its remote access policy for staff, which allows employees and faculty to effectively work from home.
The health and safety of Lok Jack GSB’s employees, faculty, students and other stakeholders are of paramount importance. As such, the Business School ensured that it acted swiftly to prevent the continued spread of the COVID-19 and eliminated the possibility of any disruption to our services and the learning process of our students.
The technology being used by staff, which includes VPN access with Softphone (Avaya One-X), allows our stakeholders, to stay connected to the Business School. We remain easily accessible through our individual work emails and extensions, and via these general channels:

We ask persons to refer to our website and social media platforms for frequent updates on the school’s activities. These channels will be used to provide up-to-date information as it becomes available.
We take this opportunity to thank specially the IT and METS staff for having the infrastructure ready and to all staff and students for their positive response to the shift in operations, as we join the global effort to preserve our safety and well-being.
We thank you for your continued support and urge you to stay abreast of the guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Ministry of Health.
