Entry Requirements for Non-Degreed Applicants

For individuals working in the private sector who have a desire to obtain advance training in Business and Management, the Department is considering opening its doors to a restricted number of these individuals. It is expected that the number of students entering the programme through this route would be highly restricted and should represent no more than 25 percent of the cohort in any given year. Students entering through this route will be required to undertake a preliminary year of study. The entry criteria for these students would therefore be:

i. Technical certificates or diplomas that can be assessed by the University of the West Indies.

ii. Five years’ experience in a business or management related field at a Supervisory or higher level.

iii. They are successful at an interview conducted by a selected panel determined by the Campus Committee on Graduate Studies and the Cave Hill School of Business and Management.

iv. Two strong letters of recommendation.

Programme Fee and University Registration fees are subject to change.
