With much anticipation, members of the Corporate Education Centre (CEC) welcomed the new January 2015 Heriot-Watt University, Masters students at their Orientation Session held on Saturday, January 03, 2015. The event was conducted simultaneously at the Trincity and San Fernando campuses.
The session commenced with Executive Director, Dr. Robin Maraj delivering his welcome remarks from the Trincity Campus. Attendees at the San Fernando campus joined in for this segment via video conference.
Following this, students were addressed by their respective Campus Managers, and were then informed of vital information shared by members of CEC Course Administration and Student Services. This information ranged from the rules and regulations of SBCS, to administrative advice and GATE guidance.
As an added bonus, guest speakers were present at the event to share their experiences on the MBA programme; some from their time as students, others as lecturers. In this regard, we warmly thank graduates Martha Brown (Trincity) and Sharlin Borel (San Fernando), and lecturers Sean Fouché (Trincity) and Burt Gransaull (San Fernando) for their words of inspiration, and sentiments expressed.
The session closed with some fun where SBCS paraphernalia was given away to attendees who successfully participated in a brief Q&A.
We wish both our new and returning Masters students all the best in this upcoming semester.
