For Non-Degreed Applicants

Students entering through this route will be required to undertake a preliminary year of study.

The entry criteria for these students would therefore be:

  1. Technical certificates or diplomas that can be assessed by the University of the West Indies.
  2. Five years’ experience in a project management related field.
  3. They are successful at an interview conducted by a selected panel determined by the Campus Committee on Graduate Studies and the Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management.
