Dear Students,

Welcome to the Bahamas Baptist University College (BBUC), where a transformative vision is unfolding under the guidance of our newly appointed president, Dr. Theresa Adderley-Smith. The future has truly arrived at BBUC, as Dr. Adderley-Smith charts a course to revitalize our institution by introducing the School of Entrepreneurial, Innovation, and Future Technologies.

This innovative initiative addresses the evolving educational landscape, aiming to meet both immediate and future needs. Our mission at The Bahamas Baptist University College is to provide cutting-edge educational opportunities within a Superior Learning environment, guiding a diverse group of learners towards academic, social, and emotional competencies.

The vision for the School of Innovation is ambitious. Through a focus on entrepreneurial, innovation, and future technologies, BBUC aims to contribute to cutting-edge innovations. Our vision for BBUC is that of a pioneering polytechnic institute, offering hands-on, practical education in STEM fields. This includes pre-licensure nursing with an entry point for students post 10th or 12th grade, as well as graduate nursing programs that encompass clinical nurse specialists.

With industry-driven programs, leading faculty, upgraded facilities, and a commitment to fostering creativity, BBUC will serve as a catalyst for change. We aim to build a strong pipeline of high-skilled STEM professionals, producing influential and innovative thinkers who will shape the future of The Bahamas.

Our current programs are approved by The National Accreditation and Equivalency Council of The Bahamas (NAECOB) and we hold memberships with prestigious international bodies.

  • The Council of Higher Education Accreditation/Council on International Quality Group (CHEA/CIQG)

We have signed Memoranda of Understanding and Articulation agreements with Florida Memorial University and The University of North Alabama, further enhancing the quality of education at BBUC.

President Dr. Adderley-Smith is establishing Advisory Committees with business leaders to provide strategic advice and feedback on industry trends, ensuring our curriculum remains relevant and impactful.

Our BBUCONLINE Learning Management System (LMS), MOODLE, ZOOM, Google Meet, and other 2.0 web tools have been carefully selected to make our programs easily accessible, regardless of degree choice, time, or location.
