Built for the Future of Business

with a brand-new game-changing business bachelor's degree

The BISB is for the young bold, the go-getters, the risk-takers! It’s for those who are ready to take on the world of business and win. This program is designed by the UWI-Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business to equip you with an unrivaled toolset of business learnings that has global scope, a practical approach, huge advancement opportunities and more.

Be the
CEO of your Career

Why doing a business degree is a GREAT idea?

When choosing a career path, you should carefully consider all aspects of what that career can offer you over the course of a lifetime. Keep in mind as you do so that what may appeal to you now may not appeal to you as much a decade or more from now.

It Is a Practical Choice

Business majors have more job security than other majors because they are needed in virtually all industries. Whether in a bank, manufacturer, energy sector, all industries need people with business acumen to function and prosper. This will always keep the demand for business majors relatively high, even in tough economic times.

Combine your passions

Even if you don’t see yourself working as an accountant or finance manager, a degree in business can help you broaden your horizons and pursue your passions successfully. For example, perhaps your true passion is in jewelry-making, and you dream of someday owning your own hand-made jewelry business. Knowing how to make beautiful jewelry is only a small piece of the puzzle; in order for your business to be successful, you’ll need to know how to write a detailed and viable financial plan, obtain financing for your business, track your profits and losses, and be comfortable with many other aspects of business management in order to keep your business profitable. This is, yet again, where experience in studying business can really come in handy in a practical way.

Higher chances of
landing a job

Did you know that the average business student lands a job within six months of graduating? That’s because there’s a huge demand for business graduates in today’s economy, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon and the opportunities are widespread as mentioned in point 1

Global Scope and flexibility

A business career will give you more flexibility in what geographic location(s) you choose. This is particularly important if you have a spouse who may end up with only one or a few options for their job location.

Easier to Switch Careers

To keep things interesting, many people find that at some point in their career, they yearn for a complete change. If you have a business career, this is much easier to do than with many other professional careers such as nursing, engineering, and radiology. This is because business skills transfer more easily between industries than the professional skills you would acquire in other professions.
