It took four years and thousands of hours of evaluation, development, and refinement, but the hard work bore fruit on May 15 when the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) received confirmation that the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) has granted UCCI first-time accreditation of the business and management programmes offered through its Department of Business Studies. UCCI will be publicly recognised for achieving accreditation at the 2018 IACBE Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting on April 19, 2018, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
President J.A. Roy Bodden, JP, offered his congratulations to the leaders of the accreditation effort, Dr. JD Mosley-Matchett, Director of Graduate Studies, and Dr. Belinda Blessitt Vincent, Chair of the Department of Business Studies, saying, "I offer my heartiest congratulations to you. This is such an outstanding example of teamwork, initiative, and commitment and I feel proud to be in the company of such persons as yourselves. I encourage you to continue to blaze new trails and wish you continued blessings in your endeavours."
