Welcome to University of The Bahamas!

UB is preparing students for a better life in a global society, offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, several graduate programmes and a variety of experiential learning opportunities. In academic year 2019-2020, we are pleased to offer a new strand of the Master of Business Administration in Accounting as well as the Higher Degree by Research at the Master’s and Doctoral level.

Our outstanding and steadfast faculty are committed to meeting the educational aspirations of our students and nurturing their creativity. Our faculty help to promote the values of learning, leadership and service and encourage students to think in new ways.

This is a momentous time in the history of the institution. The Government’s new scholarship grant programme has begun providing financial benefits of a University education to all qualified Bahamians. As a result, many more students will have the opportunity to attain a university degree.  Also, UB is committed to promoting research and embracing a constantly evolving technological infrastructure consistent with that which is required and expected of a university of the highest standard.

We stand united behind our goal to foster national, regional and international development by embracing technological innovation and advancing and disseminating knowledge.

I encourage all students to be a part of our journey by fully embracing their experience as a UB Mingoe – take classes that stretch you in addition to those that appeal to your future career interests and curiosity; embrace opportunities to learn and serve outside of the classroom by participating in one of the many co-curricular activities; and make new long lasting bonds by reaching out to faculty, staff and students across this Mingoe nation. It is my sincere hope that each student spends time exploring our many curricular and extra-curricular options to get a sense of the full range and depth of the opportunities we provide.

It is my honor and privilege to be part of University of The Bahamas at this very distinct moment in its history. We are proud to serve some of the most academically accomplished students in the nation. Together, we will grow and succeed in our mission to build character through teaching, learning, research, scholarship and service.
