Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) was established on August 1, 2012. It evolved from the merger of the former Mona School of Business (MSB) that had a 25 year history of delivering master’s level business management education and the Department of Management Studies (DOMS) which had a rich 42 years history of delivering undergraduate and graduate management programmes.
MSBM is a key plank of the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona’s value proposition to its constituents in Jamaica and the region. Specifically, its mandate is to be the arm of the University that facilitates effective business education and practices in the private and public sectors in order to advance the economic development agenda of Jamaica and the region by:
MSBM offers undergraduate (B.Sc.) degree programmes in Management Studies, Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Operations, Management Information Systems (Western Jamaica Campus (WJC)), Banking and Finance (offered jointly with the Department of Economics), Chemistry Management (Administered by the Faculty of Science and Technology) and Tourism Management.
Postgraduate degree programmes offered by MSBM include: the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA), Master in Business Administration (MBA) - Internationally Accredited by AMBA, Master of Business Management (MBM) programmes, the (MSc) degree programmes in: Tourism, National Security and Strategic Studies, Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Accounting, Computer-based Management Information Systems (CBMIS), Taxation, Sports Business Management, and the Diploma in Business Administration and Sports Business Management. New MSc programmes to be offered by the School as of September 2017 include: Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Corporate Finance, Marketing and Data Analytics, Services and Retail Management and Procurement Management. All programmes are offered in an excellent learning environment, using a pool of talented and highly qualified local and international faculty.
MSBM complements its unique academic programmes with cutting edge consultancy services and public policy research, the principal business objective being to provide decision makers with expert advice for handling their most critical strategic issues.
In this regard MSBM has handled a large portfolio of multidisciplinary projects in Jamaica and the region relating to leadership and management development, strategic thinking and management, project and performance management systems, and other areas of professional services and continues to contribute to the development of a particular ethos within the business community in Jamaica and the region.
Like most Business Schools of repute, MSBM includes unique perspectives and relevant business related content in its publication the MSB Business Review which was launched in 2010. In 2012 the magazine was renamed the MSBM Business Review to reflect the school’s merger exercise.
