Welcome to the 2013 Prospectus of the Jersey International Business School. Now in its third year, the Business School has trained over 3,000 students, studying for degree programmes through to attendance at continuing professional development sessions. In addition, the School has delivered over seven hundred in‑company training sessions around the world, and facilitated e-Learning solutions to businesses in eight jurisdictions.
In 2013, the School will offer 33 professional qualifications, 3 CPD Series, 5 Certificated Awareness Programmes and 20 short courses as well as AML e-learning and online RFA Gap Fill.
The Jersey International Business School University Centre, launched in 2012, will receive its second intake of undergraduate students on the 2-year full BSc (Hons) International Financial Services degree by The University of Buckingham. We look forward to working with HSBC, RBS International and other leading organisations as part of the degree’s structured work support programme. Two part-time degrees will also be offered in association with The University of Manchester Business School.
As the exclusive provider of a host of globally-recognised qualifications including the Central Law Training programmes leading to the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners qualifications, and the International Compliance Association qualifications, we aim to be the leading business education provider in the Channel Islands.
Jersey International Business School is made up of a very talented group of people including a number of exceptional lecturers and an administration team dedicated to the highest standards of customer service and event organisation. It is also supported by an exceptional Board of Directors. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their hard work, support and ongoing commitment.
In a global knowledge economy the future of the Jersey economy depends almost entirely upon the quality and sophistication of its skills base. The Island can no longer compete on price or tax. It faces increasingly stiff competition from other international finance centres, notably Switzerland, Hong Kong and Singapore, all of which have highly-skilled work forces. The Business School meets the Island’s need for robust, credible and quality business education. We look forward to working with you in 2013.
