Ethics and The Lord of the Rings: "One Ring to Rule Them All"
Weekly Seminar Series for Students

lord of the rings

Every Monday beginning 22nd January 2018

Mondays from 12.00 noon - 1.00 pm

Room 103, Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS)

Surendra Arjoon, PhD (Professor of Business & Professional Ethics)


Why be moral? Can we justify choosing a moral life even when the immoral life is more rewarding? If an immoral life leads to wealth, power, and fame while a morally virtuous life leads to poverty, powerlessness, and abuse, then why be moral?

Plato’s response is simple: the immoral life is a worse life than a morally virtuous life because ultimately the immoral life corrupts the soul of the immoralist. The immoral life leads to fundamental unhappiness: mental anguish, the loss of friends and loved ones, and emotional bankruptcy. All the power in the world cannot compensate for the psychological emptiness of an immoral life. The moral person, in contrast, lives a life of integrity and personal fulfillment, even if he or she is limited in power, wealth, and fame. Moral persons are at peace with themselves.

The University of the West Indies/Republic Bank Management Challenge

Management Challenge Group Picture

A landmark occasion!

Year 2 and Year 3 participants of the FIRST Management Challenge addressed the Republic Bank's Power to Make A Difference Program. The challenge allowed for the generation of fresh ideas where the students were able to add value now, even before they graduate.

The challenge was a unique opportunity to make considerable input into an existing real world scenario. They were able to get an inside look into corporate world, a chance to be an influencer and an invaluable opportunity to effect meaningful change.

The focus of the challenge was to match theory to business reality with the application of skills - research, innovation, creation of competitive advantage and multidiscipline rethinking, into the context of real world business challenges.

Republic Bank definitely benefited from the students' efforts. Additionally, the work put into their high quality presentations and their recommendations generated from their research over the course of one month was excellent.

The Department of Management Studies congratulate all students who participated (6 teams) and their mentors who put in the time and energy to coach their teams.

A job VERY well done!

Congratulations to The UWI/RBL Management Challenge 1st Place Winners!

March 2016

March 1st marked the beginning of the outreach to potential students from Barbados to join the Postgraduate Diploma (Pg. Dip.) Sports Management Programme at the UWI St. Augustine Campus. Ms. Charisse Bacchus represented the Sports Management discipline at the UWI Career Fair, Cave Hill, as well as on television and radio programmes on the island.

Charisse Bacchus meets with interested students

Ms. Bacchus noted the enthusiasm of persons who attended the Sports Management booth, noting also their desire for more information. The sight of this desire to pursue the postgraduate diploma is certainly important as Ms. Bacchus noted that student athletes do not readily consider Sports Science as a career, due particularly to societal misconceptions of its validity and potential.

Charisse Bacchus speaks at the CBC Barbados

The UWI St. Augustine had the pleasure of speaking both on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, Barbados' radio and television programmes; "Talk Back", "Good Morning Barbados", "Football Fiesta" and "The Mix". This allowed Ms. Bacchus to speak not only on the postgraduate diploma but on issues faced by women in sports, and current events in football and cricket, showing the relevance of the programme to the passions of Caribbean people today.

In the wake of this outreach, the Sports Management discipline looks forward to a further increase in interest in the Pg Dip as men and women begin to see the value of Sports Management as a career and begin to break inaccurate, traditional limitations placed on the field.

Mr Moolchand Raghunandan, Lecturer in the Department of Management Studies, The University of the West Indies (UWI), St Augustine Campus, and Mr Surendra Arjoon, Senior Lecturer, UWI Department of Management Studies

On 29th May the Department of Management Studies awarded UWI/FIFA/CIES Diplomas to the first and second cohort of students within its Post Graduate Sports Management Programme at a special ceremony held at the Learning Resource Centre.

1st and 2nd cohort students graduated after studying the foundations of sport management with a particular emphasis on the realities of the Caribbean region. Lectures were supplemented with special sessions from both local and international speakers.

Prof. Clement Sankat, Pro Vice Chancellor and Principal of The UWI;  Dr. Hamid Ghany, Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Dr. Keith Clifford, Chairman of the First Citizens Sports Foundation, stressed the vital role that sport plays in Caribbean society and the need to give qualitative support at management level. The UWI / FIFA / CIES Postgraduates have now been asked to contribute to the development of their region by investing their knowledge in sports organizations as quickly as possible.

The Department of Management Studies and the CIES would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Clement Sankat, Dr. Hamid Ghany and Mr. Errol Simms for their unwavering support of the programme from its inception and wish every success to the many happy graduates this year: Boni Bishop, Brian-Anthony David, Andrea Francis, Shawn Garcia (Valedictorian), Seychelle Grant, Francis Haynes, Charisse Bacchus, Edmund Berahzer, Vinda Ramsingh II, Sterling Seebransingh, Winston Sobers, Nyron Thomas, Christian Medina, Mauricia Nicholson National Hockey and Football player), Elizabeth Mc Comie (Betty), Brent Phillips (Valedictorian), James Stewart, Annette Knott (V.P. Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee), John Felix, Roger Pierre and Kion Williams.

The UWI/FIFA/CIES Post Graduate Diploma commenced in January 2010 following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding the previous year at the St. Augustine Campus and caters to the needs of individuals whose undergraduate training is in areas other than sports management and desire to branch into a professional career in sports management.
