We invite you to join us at Baker College.

Prepare yourself for a new career.

Baker College can help you make the career of your dreams a reality. 

Since our founding more than 100 years ago, Baker College has grown from a small business college with just 150 undergraduates to become one of our nation's premier career colleges. 

Today, we serve more than 28,000 students. We are the largest independent, not-for-profit college in the State of Michigan and home to one of the largest online educational programs in the United States. We offer certificates and degrees at every level for students pursuing careers in business, health sciences, human services, education, computers, or engineering.

Throughout our history, our mission as an institution has never changed:  to provide quality higher education and training, which enables graduates to be successful throughout challenging and rewarding careers.  

Our mission keeps our aim on one, clear objective: the employment of our graduates. We plan every action we take—whether it's curriculum design, student services, or management decisions—with the needs of two groups in mind: our students and the employers who hire them.

The result? Today, when it seems difficult for many graduates throughout the U.S. to land a job, 97% of our available graduates are employed. 

That success grows out of our business-like approach to education and the use of proven business principles. We constantly review our curricula, develop new programs, improve delivery methods, construct new facilities, invest in new technologies, and take other initiatives to meet the needs of our two customer groups.

Our growing enrollment and near-perfect employment rate proves that a career college brings success, not only to our students, but also to the business community. In fact, many "traditional" colleges and universities are now expanding their academic offerings to include more meaningful career training.  

The years ahead promise even more innovation in classes, programs, and facilities, and both on-campus and online. We invite you to learn more about Baker. 

Schedule a visit to a Baker College campus or talk with a Baker representative. We're ready to help you prepare for a great future.
