Message from the President

Welcome to Baker College of Auburn Hills!

It is always a pleasure for me to greet and welcome newcomers to our campus! Baker College of Auburn Hills recently celebrated (in 2011) our 20-year anniversary. We've been at this location since 1991, and have grown from 292 in 1991 to 3,433 in Fall 2012.

There are many reasons for our success. We feel that the primary reason is our focus on career preparation. We are here to help our students reach their career goals. We view their education and training as a partnership — students take the initiative in moving toward their educational and career goals, and our faculty and staff are dedicated to facilitating that process.

Another point of pride for us is the employment record of our available graduates. In the past 16 years, over 99% of our available graduates have been employed and, in many instances, we literally ran out of graduates for available positions. Our graduates are in demand!

Another focal point is our emphasis on customer service. We view our students as our customers. Consequently, we are always thinking of ways to do things better, both in our offices and in our classrooms. 

We are very excited and honored that you are considering joining us at Baker College of Auburn Hills!  If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to send me an e-mail at pete.karsten@baker.edu.

Pete Karsten
