Tourism is the largest economic pillar of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It employs over fifty percent of the work force and appears to be poised for greater expansion in the foreseeable future. Logically then, it should be no surprise that the need for well-trained personnel to man this industry is at an all-time high. The programs at the Bahamas Institute of Business and Technology were specifically designed to help meet this demand. Apart from students who enter the tourism from other disciplines, individuals whose primary focus is tourism studies will find a wealth of opportunities to advance and grow professionally in this sector.
Specific areas of concentration offered at BIBT include hospitality & hotel management, restaurant management, and travel & tourism management. In each case students are given a heavy dose of courses germane to the area of study. In addition general courses in Math, English and Customer Service are included in the curriculum. All in all, the curricula are designed to prepare students for entry-level positions and to advance to higher levels of study.
