For Degreed Applicants

A Bachelor’s degree from a university or college acceptable to the University of the West Indies, with at least Lower Second Class Honours.

Students with 'Pass' degrees will be considered on the following conditions:
(a) they are currently working in the field, or have adequate work experience, and
(b) they are successful at an interview conducted by the Entrance Committee within the Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management.

Two letters of recommendation.
For Non-Degreed Applicants
Many individuals working in Finance/Investments have expressed a desire to obtain advanced training. While these individuals have many years of practical experience, they tend to hold mainly certificates, diplomas or other professional designations related to their job. It is expected that the number of students entering the programme through this route will be restricted to a maximum of 25 percent of the cohort in any given year. The entry criteria for these students would therefore be:
  1. Technical certificates, diplomas or professional designations that can be assessed by the University of the West Indies.
  2. At least five years’ experience in a related field at a Supervisory or higher level.
  3. A successful interview conducted by a selected panel determined by the Campus Committee on Graduate Studies and the Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management.
  4. Two strong letters of recommendation.
