The St. Vincent & the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) has welcomed a new educational partnership.
On Tuesday 8th September 2020 the institution signed an MOU with the Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business Management (SCHSBM) – UWI, aimed at advancing the human capital of St. Vincent & the Grenadines and by extension that of the Caribbean region.
The new partnership will allow Vincentians to access a host of flexible online programmes offered by the SCHSBM, including Executive Diplomas, Executive Masters, Masters, Doctorates and short courses.
Vincentians will also be able to access via the SVGCC privileged pricing for selected SCHSBM programmes.
Director of the SVGCC, Nigel Scott, in embracing this latest initiative stated “Our partnership with the region’s premiere University goes back many years and it is one that we treasure.
On this occasion, it gives me much pleasure to partner with the Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management to provide additional opportunities for Vincentians. As we continue the task of providing training for all nationals, we look forward to a long and productive partnership with The UWI in general and The Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management in particular”.
Partnering institution’s Executive Director & CEO (Ag.) Prof. C. Justin Robinson labelled the partnership as a bold move in greater serving the region.
He remarked “Fine universities don’t exist to serve themselves but to serve their communities.
The launch of this MOU between The Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management (SCHSBM) and the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) represents a bold move to serve the people of the Eastern Caribbean by providing easier access to a wide range of academic programs at the tertiary.
SCHSBM is proud to be able to better serve the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
Vincentians are encouraged to take immediate advantage of the partnership by applying by Friday 13th November 2020 for courses starting January 2021.
