Welcome to Baker College, the largest independent college in the state of Michigan with the most focused approach to education and training available. We believe that going to college should lead you directly to a great career. And that's exactly where we come in. Unlike other colleges and universities, Baker is a career college, with one mission: to provide you job specific training so you can enter a more personally rewarding career right out of college. You will become a working professional in a successful career, not a career student.
The mission of Baker College is to provide quality higher education and training which enable graduates to be successful throughout challenging and rewarding careers.
The Center for Graduate Studies offers graduate programs providing advanced preparation in the fields of Business, Information Systems, and Occupational Therapy. These programs are designed to build upon a well-balanced undergraduate education. Students are expected to develop a thorough understanding of their chosen academic discipline. Graduate education provides students with the opportunity to increase knowledge, broaden understanding, and develop specialized skills beyond the baccalaureate degree.
The Center for Graduate Studies' administrative offices are located on the Flint campus. These administrative offices are the headquarters for the graduate programs offered at various Baker campus locations, corporate sites throughout Michigan, and online. Leadership and administration of graduate programs are provided by the President of the Center for Graduate Studies and the Graduate Faculty Council.
All graduate programs are accredited through The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The MBA program has additional international accreditation through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). The Occupational Therapy program also has additional accreditation through The Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE).
