ICCI makes room for more business students

| 26/09/2011

(CNS): The opening of a new building at the International College of the Cayman Islands will enable the school to offer more opportunities for Caymanians to study business and accounting. The new building was named the Carlyle and Martha McLaughlin Hall to honour two alumni who have made substantial professional and financial contributions spanning three decades. Although there have been some delays to fully equip the classrooms with the latest technology, the new building is already being used for the fall quarter courses.

In the next couple weeks, both classrooms will include a smart board and a laptop, technology, which is being used by the most progressive universities around the world, explained Dr. Cummings.

ICCI’s Dean, Scott Cummings said the new building will enable the International College to increase its course offerings each term, said Dean Scott Cummings. “These state-of-the-art classrooms in the new building means we can better serve the student body,” the Dean said. “It is an important step forward for the college as we continue to grow our student body and institution without being held back because of lack of space.”

The Cayman Islands Society of Professional Accountants and the Cayman Islands Fund Administrators Association have both sponsored the fitting out of aclassroom which has helped the college a non-profit institution keep the tuition affordable while maintaining its international accreditation.

“This new building will provide the opportunity for more local students to obtain qualifications that will open doors for them in the accounting and administration professions as well as other areas of the financial industry in Cayman,” said CIFAA chair Darren Stainrod. “In doing so, it will ensure the availability of qualified professionals to enable the businesses on the island to grow and to maintain Cayman’s position as a leading global financial centre.”
