Testimonials

Nwadike Bacchus – Cohort 16

Although my primary background is in international relations, enrolling in the Masters of Science in International Trade Policy (MITP) programme was a pivotal step in my developmental journey, as it introduced me to the technical aspects of international trade. I can say with confidence, do not be daunted if your background is not in related fields such as economics or law, because there is a place for all disciplines in international trade. I was able to benefit from the wealth of knowledge shared by real-world experts, the excellent teaching staff, and the various opportunities to learn, such as the Model WTO International. It was an unforgettable experience that prepared me for the field ahead, and one that I highly recommend to those interested in pursuing it.

Our History

The origins of today’s Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services (SRC) lie in the Centre for International Services (CIS). The CIS was set up in 1999 under the Principal’s Office of the Cave Hill Campus to signal the preparedness of the University of the West Indies (UWI) to respond to the inherent challenges and opportunities for Caribbean countries resulting from the ongoing changes in the world economy. The CIS was mandated to create a forum for the development of the Caribbean services sector through innovation, consultancy, specialized research, advocacy and partnerships.
