09. Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology
The Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology was established in 2009 following a separation in the management of the various centers of Success Training College. Essentially this new institution is an amalgamation of Success Center for Extended Studies, Success Training College, Freeport and Success Satellite Centers in Abaco and Eleuthera. So in essence, while the name is new the college is born out of a rich tradition of academic and training excellence.
Like Success Training College, the Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology was founded by Dr. Deswell Forbes, a pioneer of private college-level education in The Bahamas. As the guiding force behind this new endeavor it is expected that Dr. Forbes will cause his vast knowledge and experience to propel The Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology to stratospheric levels of success. The college currently offers Associate Degrees, Certificate and Diploma programs in a wide array of disciplines. Additionally, seminars and workshops are regularly scheduled to meet the training and development needs of local businesses and the community at large.
In keeping with its stated mission, The Bahamas Institute of Business and Technology is quickly distinguishing itself as a leader in providing quality education and takes great pride in the services it offers to the community through its career-oriented programs. Students who complete studies at BIBT are eligible for promotions, increments and qualify for entry-level positions in banking, management, finance, teaching, health-care and many other related fields. Additionally, students who wish can transfer credits to many colleges and universities in the Caribbean, the USA, Canada and the UK and receive advanced placement in their selected program of study.
With the establishment of The Bahamas Institute of Business & Technology, Bahamians across the length and breadth of this commonwealth of islands will now have the opportunity to fulfill their educational needs and dreams without the many obstacles that confronted them in the past. And so we encourage all aspiring individuals to take advantage of many options the college provides.
