St. George’s, Grenada (May 31, 2011) – The T.A. Marryshow Community College signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University College of the Caribbean (UCC) to be its primary partner in Grenada to offer four bachelor degree and two graduate degree programmes.
Starting in late August, UCC will offer bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, Information Technology, Human Resource Management and Marketing, all of which are accredited by the national accrediting body in Jamaica. The UCC’s Commonwealth Master in Business Administration (MBA) and Master in Public Administration will also be offered at the TAMCC facility in the new school term. Applicants will also have the option of selecting to do their degree programmes via UCC Online, a hybrid programme which allows students to complete most of their courses online and complete others in face-to-face classes.
Under the agreement signed yesterday by UCC’s President, Winston Adams, and TAMCC’s Principal, Dr. Jeffrey Britton, qualified graduates of TAMCC may register to complete their bachelor’s degree on the TAMCC campus facility. The arrangement will also allow graduates of other institutions and qualified members of the public to pursue their undergraduate as well as their graduate degrees at the St. Georges, Grenada facility.
On signing the agreement, Dr. Britton said, “As a College, we are cognizant of our responsibility to develop the next generation of professionals. This partnership supports our own promise to provide the best educational opportunities for the development of our nation, opportunities that will prepare our people to meet the changing needs of our society.”
In his response, the UCC President stated, “While this partnership will deepen UCC’s presence in the region, it is an indication that we share the goal of engaging students in skills that will prepare them to be the leaders of our future.”
The University College of the Caribbean is a recognized private tertiary institution based in Jamaica offering courses at the Diploma, Associate, Bachelor and Master levels of education at ten locations island wide. While the core areas of focus are business studies and information technology, UCC also offers advanced education studies and law at its main campus in Kingston.
