The [College of The Bahamas](http://www.cob.edu.bs/) School of Business is preparing for the 2016 edition of [Business Week](http://www.cob.edu.bs/FLYERS/SBUS_BUSINESSWEEK_SPR2016.pdf), March 7 through 11. This year’s event is being held under the theme, “Building a Stronger Economy through Entrepreneurship, Creativity and Innovation”.
According to Remelda Moxey, Acting Dean of Faculty and Assistant Professor at the School of Business, Business Week is designed to engage the COB community in discourse geared around business in The Bahamas and best practices. She said, *”To further augment this conversation, former students have been invited to share their experiences and journey before, during and after their tenure at The College of The Bahamas. In an effort to enhance this involvement we also saw it necessary to invite business executives from the public and private sector to share their understandings in an effort to prepare students for the business world.”*
Glen Davis, coordinator and lecturer in the School of Business, added: *”This year’s Business Week promises to be an exciting one discussing the role of small and medium enterprises in the development of the local economy. We have a list of young successful Bahamian entrepreneurs who we are beyond pleased to recognize during Business Week.”*
Also included in the Week’s activities will be a discussion on the state of the economy post Value Added Tax (VAT), and an essay and speech competition to allow students to compete amongst their peers for prizes, surprises and the opportunity to showcase their talents.
The School of Business at the College offers a broad range of programmes in the dynamic fields of business administration. The School of Business’ goal is to provide model service while preparing students to become entrepreneurs and executives in business. Additionally, the school aims to further add to the development of the corporate arena of The Bahamas in general. At the Oakes Field Campus, the programmes of study lead to the Bachelor in Business Administration Degree and are designed to prepare students to assume responsible positions in business and governmental organisations, or to pursue post graduate degrees, whether locally or overseas. The Northern Bahamas Campus offers the Bachelor in Business Administration in Accounting and Management as well as an Associate of Arts in Computer Information Systems. Additionally, at the Family Island Centres, an Associate of Arts in Business and a Certificate in Business Administration are available, but are subject to demand.
