REALISE YOUR FULL POTENTIAL

“I’ve been a student of UCCI since 2005. UCCI offered me a wonderful opportunity that I would not have received had I obtained my degree from abroad—that is, to work and study at the same time in order to accomplish my educational goal. I would simply like to thank the outstanding faculty who made themselves available and encouraged me along the way. It’s because of UCCI, that I have completed my Associate's, Bachelor's and Master of Human Resource Management degrees. I have reached both my educational and career goals!”

The Masters in Human Resource Management is a 36 credit graduate programme that enhances the skills of current and aspiring HR Professionals. UCCI has collaborated with the Cayman Islands Society of Human Resource Professionals (CISHRP) to design the programme to suit professionals working in the Cayman Islands as well as meeting the requirements of international workplaces. In addition, internationally recognised professional certification is offered as part of the degree.

The programme consists of three modules offered over an 18-month period. Successful completion of all these modules will entitle a student to be awarded the Master's degree in Human Resource Management.
