Dean's Message

Welcome to our new and returning students to the College of Business and Management (COBAM) at the University of Technology, Jamaica.  It is a privilege to represent the faculty and staff members that serve our campuses and community through teaching, research and service. Our mission is to deliver undergraduate, graduate and professional programmes in Business and Management that advance knowledge and creative works, through cutting-edge teaching strategies, experiential learning, applied research, innovation, entrepreneurship and community service, to promote the development of  Jamaica and the wider the Caribbean region.

To realise our mission the College offers curricula in a student-centred nurturing environment while encouraging you to engage in self-directed learning through our supportive and experienced administrators, faculty and advisors to guide you in achieving your educational goals. There are also numerous opportunities for you to improve your leadership and developmental skills, through the various clubs, societies and other activities on the various campuses and within the community.

The College’s undergraduate and graduate courses of study are offered through four schools:

School of Business Administration

School of Hospitality and Tourism Management

Joan Duncan School of Entrepreneurship Ethics and Leadership

School of Advanced Management

Through our dedication to national and regional development, the College provides students with a global perspective and knowledge of the economically and culturally interconnected and interdependent world.  The College prides itself as a recognised centre for innovation and entrepreneurship in Jamaica and the region and is noted for preparing professionals with engaging, comprehensive and dynamic knowledge and skills, to create solutions for the present and future challenging business environment.

We are aware that COVID-19 has significantly impacted our mode of operation, and the College has had to pivot and is now offering its courses of study using blended modalities. Whatever your mode of study, we welcome you warmly and look forward to a successful and fruitful experience.

We hope you will make the most of the opportunities presented to expand your knowledge.

Best Wishes

Andrea Sutherland, DBA
