The School of Accounting and Management (SAM Caribbean Ltd) commenced operation in 1984 offering short training courses in Accountancy, Management and Marketing. SAM later expanded its training into professional programmes of Business Management, Hotel and Tourism Management, Accounting, Banking and Marketing.
From its inception SAM identified a significant gap in the education system. Students wanting to pursue business degrees only had two options - attending a full time school abroad or a local university. SAM realized there was a need and became an innovator and leader in the provision of full time, evenings or Saturday programmes. At that time it was unthinkable that a private institution could offer a globally recognized British degree which could be completed in just three years through an evening only or a Saturday only time schedule.
