Alicia Nicholls – Cohort 6

Doing the MITP programme was one of my best career decisions! My interest in trade was piqued after pursuing an elective course in Trade and the Environment during my undergraduate studies in Political Science. I was elated to learn there was an entire Masters being offered by the UWI Cave Hill on International Trade Policy. What sets the MITP apart from many other Masters programmes in trade globally is that it has found that perfect balance between giving you an international perspective through its cadre of internationally renowned lecturers and Geneva study tour, while also including a Small States/Caribbean perspective. Its multidisciplinary approach, as well as its mixture of theoretical and practical components, equip the trade professional with all the skills necessary to function in this dynamic field, whether in a government, the private sector or civil society capacity. I highly recommend the programme to anyone with an interest in the field of trade.
