UCCI adds master’s in human resources

The University College of the Cayman Islands has added a master’s degree in human resource management to its offerings.

The program was developed in collaboration with the Cayman Islands Society of Human Resources Professionals and is tailored to suit those working in the Cayman Islands human resources market while also meeting the requirements of international workplaces.

Courses begin Oct. 12, with the first of three two-day seminars, the other two being held in November and December. The two-day events are being offered as stand-alone seminars for those interested in certification in specific areas, but not necessarily the master’s degree.

The program is a mix of such seminars along with regular courses. Students will also do courses from the executive certificate in global leadership program that is offered in partnership with Florida International University and taught by FIU professors.

Program applicants must have at least two years of HR experience and should have a bachelor’s degree. Applicants who do not hold a bachelor’s degree but who have significant experience in an HR role may be given consideration for entry into the program.

The cost of the program is $14,500, inclusive of materials (except one textbook) and all fees. Stand-alones are priced separately with discounts offered when participants sign up for multiple seminars.
