Business and Technology Institute (BTI)

Welcome to The Bishop Tharp Business and Technology Institute (BTI)

The Business and Technology Institute (BTI) of Les Cayes is a two-year institution of postsecondary education, modeled after a US community college, located on the Southwestern tip of Haiti in Les Cayes.  The institute operates under the auspices of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti, with support from Episcopal Relief and Development and parishes and individuals throughout the United States.

BTI, one of the finest educational institutions in Haiti, has a two fold-mission.  One, to provide students in Southwestern Haiti with the opportunity to achieve a high quality, American-style, university-level education without being forced to leave their families and homes in this region. BTI also strives to support the economic development of Les Cayes and the surrounding areas by providing skilled employees for existing businesses and by supporting entrepreneurial graduates in starting and successfully operating small businesses.
