UCC was established in January 2004 with an initial focus on providing more accessible, high quality and flexible educational programmes to Jamaicans. UCC was established subsequent to the acquisition by the Institute of Management Sciences Ltd (IMS) of Institute of Management and Production (IMP). This merger occurred in January 2002 and created the nation’s first University College, the University College of the Caribbean (UCC).
