Always at the forefront of postgraduate education, The Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business (GSB) has launched another dynamic Commercial Customer Business Programme. This programme, created in collaboration with Republic Bank Limited, was officially opened on Tuesday 28th April 2009, at the school’s Mt. Hope Campus. The four week programme is geared towards equipping business owners with viable new skills which can enhance a business’ competitiveness and success.

This crop of students is the sixth cohort to participate in this business development programme. According to Jacqueline Quamina, Acting General Manager, Republic Bank Limited, this programme is intended to help in the creation of “a strong base of dynamic businesses which would help Trinidad and Tobago pull through the current downturn”.  Matthew Oliver, a graduate of the Commercial Customer Business Programme echoed her sentiments and testified to the real world merits of the programme in areas of strategy, marketing, financial planning and understanding the local, regional and global environments. Nirmala Harrylal, Consulting Manager at the Lok Jack GSB, gave a short address at the launch and expressed the GSB’s commitment to continue designing and implementing business development intervention programmes.
