Marlon says “l value my time at UWI. I had many brilliant professors that helped mold me. The Entertainment & Cultural Enterprise Management degree opened my eyes. Believe it or not, this degree helps me with living in the United States. E.C.E.M. makes me appreciate foreign cultures so much more than I did before. It created a sense of curiosity within me. Whenever I meet someone new, I always try to find out more about their culture - congrats to the UWI for creating this degree.”
