The University of the West Indies (UWI) is partnering with the First Caribbean International Bank (FCIB) to further enhance the student experience. Their newest joint venture is the Inter-Campus Case-Analysis Competition to be held from Sunday 31st May to Thursday 4th June, 2009 at the UWI Mona Campus in Jamaica. The competition will allow students to examine and scrutinise business strategies used by various Caribbean companies.

This initiative is hosted by the university’s Department of Management Studies and is geared toward students involved in all aspects of business studies. The project is expected to use Caribbean business cases as a teaching device and tool to allow students to examine classroom theory in a practical setting. It will also serve to promote greater interaction and healthy competition amongst UWI and its other tertiary-level counterparts.
