Institutional Members - Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business (Lok Jack GSB)

The Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business (Lok Jack GSB), formerly the Institute of Business, was established in 1989, as an ambitious and unprecedented collaboration between The University of the West Indies and the private sector. The Business School was borne out of the recognition of a need to support higher education, develop individual and organisational capacity and promote global competitiveness. Its Motto-Innovatus Ars Ducendi, means Innovating the Art of leadership and its purpose is to educate extraordinary innovative leaders who positively reshape business and society while constantly challenging the status quo of human development.

The Lok Jack GSB is the Caribbean’s leading Business School and offers internationally recognised MBA programmes, which are accredited by the Association of MBA’s (AMBA) in the UK. Registered by ACTT, the Lok Jack GSB has trained and developed more than 20,000 people locally, regionally and internationally and has even gone as far a field as Botswana, Swaziland and the Seychelles. They have also been listed as one of only three centres of excellence in the Commonwealth.
