The world is constantly evolving and there has never been a more exciting time to start shaping your tomorrow with a UCCI master’s degree. The University College of the Cayman Islands Graduate Studies Department is now open for programme enrolment. Gaining your master’s degree in human resources, business administration or public administration is now attainable through adaptable scheduled programmes and flexible payment plans.
Get started with any of the programmes being offered, including:
• Master in Human Resources Management (MHRM),
• Commonwealth Executive Master of Business Administration (CEMBA) and
• Commonwealth Executive Master in Public Administration (CEMPA).
Each of these programmes is taught on a flexible schedule to ensure that working professionals can attain their degrees and maintain their incomes. The majority of the classes are self-paced and self-instructional, with course participants required to have ten (10) hours of instructor contact per class. To ensure that master’s students receive the best education and maintain the highest standards, CEMBA and CEMPA students are limited to a maximum of four courses per semester.
The programme lengths vary. The MHRM is a 36-credit programme that will last for 18 months and is comprised of three modules. It is broken into modules to also accommodate HR practitioners who might need professional development. This ensures that those individuals who do not wish to do the degree but would like to be certified are able to participate in the programme. Each of the CEMBA and CEMPA programmes is two years of full-time study (i.e., four semesters or approximately 1,800 hours).
“Students who pursue the master’s programmes at UCCI are assured of a student-centred approach every step of the way”, says Director of Graduate Studies, Dr Stephanie Fullerton-Cooper. “UCCI works assiduously to help them attain their academic goals. UCCI is also partnering with local and overseas institutions and organisations to ensure its offerings are cutting edge and meet international standards. We also ensure that classes are scheduled in such a way that working professionals can attend classes outside of their working hours. At the UCCI Graduate Studies Department, all students matter and are taken into consideration as programmes are planned.”
For admission to any of the UCCI Graduate Studies Department programmes, applicants should have a bachelor’s degree. Applicants who do not hold a bachelor’s degree but who have significant work experience in an appropriate related field may be given consideration for entry into the programmes. The cost of the programmes varies (MHRM: CI$14,500, CEMPA and CEMBA: $18,200.00), and these costs are inclusive of materials and some fees. Stand-alone seminars are priced separately with discounts offered when participants sign up for multiple offerings. UCCI also offers all interested applicants a payment plan through our flex pay system to help students reach their academic goals.
