About UCC



The University College of the Caribbean (UCC) is a privately-held tertiary institution providing world class educational programmes and highly trained and qualified faculty.

The institution, headquartered in Kingston, Jamaica was formed in 2004 following the merger of two institutions (the Institute of Management Sciences established in 1992 and the Institute of Management & Production established in 1976) in 2002. The expanded institution has created the nation's first university college and remains one of the fastest growing institutions in the country and the Caribbean.
