Universities sign memorandum

The University College of the Cayman Islands and Brock University signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the school’s library last Friday.

The Memorandum of Understanding deals with the development of a student exchange program for business students at both institutions to allow international exposure to students.

UCCI will also be working with the Brock Business Faculty to offer accounting certification program to include the CFA, CPA and CGA designations.

The two institutions will also be working on the development of graduate programmes: An MBA programme and Teachers Training programme.

This joint cooperation will open up even more doors to the world for both Universities’ students.

UCCI is the Cayman Islands premier university, serving the ever changing needs of the diverse population of the Cayman Islands.

UCCI was first established in 1975 when the Community College was established as a part-time institution.

From 1976 to 1981 three other institutions – the Trade School, the Hotel School and the Marine School – were founded.

In 1987, by an Act of the Legislative Assembly, the College was established as a semi-autonomous post-secondary educational institution and in 2004, by an act of the Legislative Assembly, the name of the institution was changed from the Community College of the Cayman Islands to the University College of the Cayman Islands.

Brock University is located at the centre of Canada’s beautiful Niagara Peninsula in St. Catharine, Ont.,

It is the only Canadian university with the distinction of being part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The University offers strong undergraduate, graduate and interdisciplinary degree programs that include co-op and other experiential learning opportunities to a student population of more than 17,000.
