Professional Development Centre

Professional Development Centre

It takes a lot of factors to run and sustain a successful organisation: talent, luck, creativity, technology, and a favourable economic environment. One key element to sustainable success is leadership talent -- a strong bench of both deep content experts and highly skilled and innovative organisational implementers, each at different stages of their career development yet all in sync with the organisation's culture, values and goals.

Each organisation needs a leadership cadre, not just a few superstars! The UCCI Professional Development Centre can help reinvigorate your organisation by empowering the professionals who work there -- through internationally-benchmarked standards and proven techniques that are quick and cost-effective. PDC partners with practicing local and international experts to bring the latest and greatest right here to Grand Cayman.

Why PDC

The Professional Development Centre (PDC) at the University College of the Cayman Islands UCCI offers an extensive array of educational opportunities specifically designed to help businesses and organisations in the Cayman Islands meet today’s multifaceted and international challenges.

As a result of a new focus on global competitiveness, UCCI's business and management programmes offered through the Department of Business Studies and Professional Development at the University College of the Cayman Islands are accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education.

UCCI is also continuing to meet the unique needs of local businesses through custom-designed professional development. When the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) wanted to design an Educational Series for its members, UCCI was picked as the teaching partner with state-of-the-art training facilities and highly credentialed faculty members available for maximum effectiveness.

Students served by the PDC at UCCI get more than classes—they gain expertise. The PDC leverages UCCI’s strengths through a fully credentialed faculty, a dedication to flexible learning opportunities for working adults, collaboration with internationally superior educational partners, and a single-minded responsiveness to the needs of local businesses.

Learn more about these and other educational opportunities and take the first step toward your brighter future by arranging a free, no commitment private consultation.
