Business and Hospitality Management is a nationally recognised consortium of university scholars, corporate leaders and qualified students dedicated to research and learning. We have a strong focus on nation building and contribute to the knowledge base of University of The Bahamas and the business and hospitality community.
Business and Hospitality Management comprises the Department of Accounting, Banking and Finance; Department of Computer Information Systems; and Department of Management and Marketing. Our overarching objectives are to prepare graduates to assume leadership positions, be critical thinkers and decision makers and become the catalyst that transforms the economic environment of The Bahamas through entrepreneurship and innovation. To meet the needs of full- and part-time students and provide them with the flexibility needed to balance effectively work, study and other commitments, we offer courses on the weekend. To ensure our offerings continue to be relevant and our graduates well prepared, we invite public and private sector stakeholders to conduct periodic reviews of our programmes. Additionally, our majors participate in scholarly pursuits and develop analytical competencies to solve business, hospitality and public policy issues. This ensures that they are adequately prepared for graduate school and their chosen careers.
During their recruitment process, public accounting firms view UB as the institution of choice. Our accounting graduates uphold our stellar reputation by passing the certified public accounting examination within a year after graduation. Graduates of our finance programme obtain high marks on the certified financial analyst examination. Our Human Resource Management (HRM) programme is attracting significant interest from students and the professional HRM community. Computer Information System students are pursued by information assurance and technology industry employers as early as their junior year. The Hospitality Management programme is being developed to become the leading choice for training in that sector.
Business and Hospitality Management will continue to be a strong pillar of UB. We will continue to prepare students to make meaningful contributions and assume significant positions in the global environment. Welcome to Business and Hospitality Management!
