Our History

Previously called the Institute of Business (IOB), we were established in 1989 as a collaboration between The University of the West Indies and the private sector. The private sector then joined together to raise funding for the Institute and among the initial subscribers were the Royal Bank of Trinidad & Tobago, Republic Bank Ltd., Neal & Massy, Ansa Mc Al and Trinidad Cement Ltd. In July 2005, the UWI- Lok Jack GSB moved into the state of art facility located in Mt. Hope Trinidad and Tobago, and continues to enjoy strong endorsement from the business community. It has attracted an endowment from the Arthur Lok Jack Foundation and other sponsorships from Republic Bank Ltd, Yara Trinidad Ltd, The Neal & Massy Group, Guardian Holdings Ltd and businessman Byron Gopaul.

Purpose:

The UWI-ALJGSB’s Purpose is to educate extraordinary innovative leaders who positively reshape business and society while constantly challenging the status quo of human development.

Mission:

To improve the international competitiveness of people and organisations in the Caribbean through business education, training, consulting and research.

For almost 30 years since then, we continue to be synonymous with excellence. This has been clearly demonstrated through the exacting standards of our esteemed faculty; the applicable and in-depth content of our programmes and the undeniable

success of our graduates. We continue to be the pioneers in tertiary education within the region; evidenced not only by producing thousands of graduates at MBA and Doctorate level but also enhancing the skills of several professionals through in-company training and mentorship. This undisputed commitment to consistent improvement and quality motivates us to find the most innovative ways to surpass all organisational goals and eliminate any limitations which compromise the established ideals of this institution.

We currently offer Academic Programmes at the Master and Doctoral level, but will be launching an Undergraduate Programme in 2018, pending formal approval from The University of the West Indies. Our Executive Education courses, Conferences, Consulting and Business Incubator services continue to complement the formal academic programmes with accessible learning experiences aimed at business professionals.
