Management Program Curriculum

Here is our current Management Curriculum.

Gensler Foundation Grant

A grant from the Gensler Architectural firm supported Jim Coady coming to UNOGA to give a course on project management. His wife Ann visited as well and taught English. In addition to making the management course possible, the Gensler grant helped to support scholarships for three management students: Lumernode Esperance, Etna Sigue, and Herchand Dukens Dorismond.

International Finance Course

Margi Sirovatka taught a course on International Finance at UNOGA for our management students. She works at JP Morgan Chase and was able to receive a volunteer grant to come and teach the course. Some of this grant will allow us to enlarge our scholarship program and also help with some of the university development.

Additionally she was able to secure a donation from professor Harry Kraemer of 15 copies of his book From Values to Action to our students. This management book focuses on four principals of sound management: self-reflection, balance, true self-confidence, and genuine humility.


Entrepreneurship Internship

The management students at UNOGA participated in an internship focused on entrepreneurship conducted by Professor Andres Marroquin from the Francisco Marroquin University in Guatemala. Some excerpts from his blog are below.


“This has been one of the most fantastic academic experiences in my life. I facilitated an internship on entrepreneurship to college students. Some ideas:
1) The students have been fantastic, with great attitude. They are very talented. The provision of college education in Haiti seems to be a “low hanging fruit,” using Tyler Cowen’s idea, for the development and economic growth of the country. If one of the main problems of Haiti is lack of leadership at different levels, a proper university education can be an adequate solution. If you want to have a great intellectual adventure and want to engage in effective aid come and teach in Haiti. And consider UNOGA.
2) Lack of electricity seems to be the root of many problems in Jeremie, such as poor health services, it is also a great obstacle for all kinds of businesses and startups. Opening the market to private provision can be a solution. Markets have been opened in other cities such as Jacmel with good results.
3) Haiti could possibly leapfrog to the advantages of online education, skipping some steps in the traditional historical trajectories of higher education of developed countries.

Thanks UNOGA, thanks Jeremie, and thanks Haiti!!!”
