WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THE MSU?
MSU stands for the management society of the university of the west Indies. It consists of a superb executive together with the guidance of our advisor, Professor Rajendra Ramlogan, work together to deliver the pre-eminent experience to the members of MSU. In the MSU, we are mostly consist of management students from the faculty of FSS. However, this is not the boundary to whom we welcome to our society, as MSU is open to all students at the University of the West Indies.
We give our members first hand opportunities to Internships that are proposed to our interest. This provides each member with the chance to gain experience and portray what they’ve learned in the class room, to the real world. We also assist our members in academic advising, aside from the ones they’ve received upon entry into the new semester, as well as further guidance in choosing their minors and going on with their degree.
Members of MSU, all have been through one or 2 courses together, and therefore, they pass down information onto the students after them. Aside from academics, MSU engages in fundraising events, fun-filled and relaxing events and festivals and we also host charitable events as one of our main objectives is to always work hard to assist those in need.
We work hard to ensure that our members have a proper and ethical experience in the Management department by providing assistance to any questions, concerns or queries in which they may bring to our attention. Together as a team, our goal as students in the university is to excel and work towards a success, something we’ve all dreamt about as young children. So, do more than just dream, and join the MSU Team!
