Baker College, named after regional educator and entrepreneur Eldon E. Baker, was founded in Flint Township, Michigan in 1911, and has since expanded to thirteen locations throughout the Lower Peninsula. Its Center for Graduate Studies offers post-baccalaureate programs in business, education, health administration, health sciences, human services and nursing. Baker’s extensive online college boasts a top-ten ranking for the best business and management doctoral degrees, and is proud of its 100%-online options for busy students who don’t want to relocate to a physical campus. Not that going to a building should be overwhelming here: the average class size is just 12. And since Baker is decidedly not-for-profit, it purposely limits its tuition rates to about half those of comparable institutions. Furthermore, the Center for Graduate Studies’ Career Services division has dedicated staff—separate from Baker’s undergraduate personnel—that help connect hundreds of alumni each year with fulfilling work. No wonder 97% of Baker students are already employed even before graduating!
