The Master in Business Management programme emphasizes the core business concepts and practical dimensions of business management, allowing students to self-select either an entrepreneurial or an internship stream.
The current cohort of students with guidance from their Lecturers and James Moss Solomon , Executive in Residence, recently organized a Career Seminar in order to provide a forum where they could interact with professionals from various industries with a view to exposing them to options for their career path upon graduation.
This highly interactive session, which was held on March 27, 2013, included presentations from representatives in the Financial Services, Manufacturing, Energy and Logistics sectors. The speakers included : Donovan Perkins- CEO Sagicor Investments, Damian Lyn- Managing Director/Owner of Alternative Energy Solutions, Grace Burnett- Managing Director of JIIC, Dr. Fritz Pinnock- Executive Director, Caribbean Maritime Institution, and Simon Roberts- General Manager, Dairy Industries (Jamaica) Ltd.
In addition to providing industry related information, each speaker included personal experiences related to challenges they have encountered, how they overcame those challenges, and the nuances of their respective fields. The overall event was a success as students were able to gain meaningful insights from some of Jamaica’s leading business persons. The partnership with Industry is a major strategic thrust of the Mona School of Business and Management.
