College Profile: Baker College
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.
Founded in 1911, Baker College has brought the joy of career fulfillment to hundreds of thousands of graduates through the years. Whether on one of our 9 campuses, 6 branch locations, or online worldwide, all of our students want to improve their career situation. With Baker in their corner, they do— 98% of our available graduates are currently employed.
Unlike "traditional" colleges and universities, the employment of our graduates is our sole focus. In fact, 98% of our graduates are employed. As a result, every Baker College action - from curriculum design, to student service offerings, to management decisions - is planned with the needs of only two groups in mind: our students and the employers who hire them.
In order to achieve this goal, Baker believes it must act like a business. To meet the needs of our two customer groups, we are constantly developing new educational programs and innovative delivery methods. Baker College now offers classes at every degree level in traditional classroom settings, via a network of video-based distance delivery facilities, and through the Internet. Every year, in the course of what we consider "normal business," we work a little harder to prepare our students for successful careers by introducing new programs, opening new campuses, constructing new facilities, and embracing innovative technology that has allowed us to deliver our curriculum across the country and around the world.
Our growing numbers prove that more and more students are turning to "career colleges" as their choice for a college education, while our near-perfect employment rates underscore the business community's support of our efforts. In truth, the sheer number of "traditional" colleges racing to embrace Baker's philosophy of education stands as a testament to our ability to deliver an educational product that works.
Like any good business, however, we don't plan to let our momentum slow. The coming years promise more innovation in the delivery of our classes and programs, further expansion of our facilities and campuses, and a continued focus on our online programs.
