The School of Accounting and Management (SAM Caribbean Ltd.) commenced operation in 1984 o ering short training courses in Accountancy, Management &
Marketing. SAM later expanded its training into professional programmes of Business Management, Hotel and Tourism Management, Accounting, Banking & 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 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 o er a globally recognized British degree which could be
completed in just three years through an evening only or a Saturday only time schedule. SAM became the first institution in Trinidad
and Tobago to o er recognized Bachelor Degrees in Business, Information Technology, Law, Banking and many others areas on a
three time option basis. Working persons were able to pursue a fully recognized degree in just three years while retaining their jobs.
Prior to SAM's existence, it was impossible to obtain entry into degree programmes without full O' Level certification and at least two
A' Levels. SAM's founder, Dr. Asaf Pirali, went to many British universities where he sought alternative entry requirements based on
work experience. This gave persons who had not excelled at secondary school an opportunity to pursue degree studies.
SAM o ers students the ability to begin their tertiary level education with just their CXC passes. We o er access programmes that
allow students entry into any one of SAM's business bachelor degree programmes. Our pre-qualifying programmes can be
completed in just five months of studies and replaces the need to do A' Levels or CAPE which takes two years to complete. Unlike
CAPE, the combination of subject areas in the Certificate Programme is specific and focuses on the necessary knowledge and skills
to provide a solid foundation for entry into the subsequent degree.
Achievement of a pass allows student entry into our degree programmes whereas someone studying for CAPE must have at least 180 grade points. Many students
come to SAM regretting that they had gone to study CAPE which took them two years then found out they have not achieved the amount of grade points or that they
have failed to obtain a pass. All students who apply themselves by attending class and completing assignments are successful in the certificate programmes. Students
of this programme gain tremendous skills in Business Management, Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Business Mathematics, Research Skills and
Business Writing skills along with a tremendous programme in Personal Development that prepares them for degree studies.
SAM gradually increased its Bachelor and Master Degrees programmes.
SAM sought partners that o ered the highest quality globally recognized
education. Historically, SAM has maintained a policy of continuous
improvement. Programmes are modified to ensure that they are relevant
nationally, regionally and globally in keeping with the business
SAM o ers one of the the world's best degree in Business Computing.
The programme is internationally recognised and provides a blend of
computer skills, practical skills and management training because
students benefit from modules such as Oracle, My SQL, e-Business,
Network Security & Cryptography... London Metropolitan University
(LMU) is one of the largest universities in England.
The Henley Business School and the University of Reading are two of the
school's most prestigious prathners. The Henley MBA is one of the finest MBAs in the world. It is ranked in the 14th Edition of The Economist as, "the best MBA in the
UK". Henley's MBA is triple accredited by the internationally recognized AASCB (USA), EQUIS (Europe) and AMBA (UK) which makes Henley a truly Global accredited
MBA. The Henley MBA has drawn persons from a wide cross section of the business and government sectors. Graduates of this prestigious programme have become
senior executives in leading companies, hold senior government positions or have become business owners.
Many of SAM's graduates are employed globally in Dubai, Egypt, Europe, Australia, the United States and Canada. SAM desired to o er a wider range of a ordable
MBA options to facilitate a wider cross section of Managers to access MBA programmes. In 2009, SAM introduced the Anglia Ruskin University MBA which o ers
specialized options in Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Human Resource Management, Marketing and Management.
In 2011 SAM proudly achieved another milestone by o ering M.Sc. programmes in modern technologies such as the M.Sc. in Network Security, Computer and
Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Through the Anglia Ruskin University SAM also o ers a DBA programme. Anglia Ruskin University's proud history
goes back to 1858 when John Ruskin founded the Cambridge School of Art, now part of our Cambridge campus. Anglia Ruskin University is passionate about the
advancement of knowledge and the education of its students. It is the largest university in the East of England and currently educates around 31,500 students, from
more than 70 di erent countries outside the EU with campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford.
The Anglia Ruskin degree courses we o er are carefully designed to be both challenging of existing business practice and structured to encourage students to develop
their creativity, enterprise and problem-solving abilities as part of a wide range of relevant work skills that will make them attractive to potential employers.
SAM o ers a range of both undergraduate and postgraduate courses and engage closely with our partner universities, supporting each other to ensure that our students
are brought into contact with highly qualified academics in both Trinidad and from the UK via guest lectures, and with expert practitioners, giving valuable insights into
current strategic approaches with a students' chosen field of study at SAM.
SAM provides national access to students by providing a North and South campus. SAM was founded on the principle of integrity and ascribes its success to the
founder's faith in God who believes that "the two most valuable assets anyone can achieve are an excellent education that is globally recognized and knowledge and
faith in the true and living God."
