For more than 60 years, Bay State College has been guided an enduring set of core values--Quality, Respect and Support. Over time, these values have brought us growth and success, and continue to do so today for our students.
Bay State College opened in 1946 to serve a single industry, the airlines, by providing students with hands-on skills and paying particular attention to a strong educational foundation. Then as now, the College was known for its small classes, individual attention, and focus on specific careers.
In 1961, Bay State moved to its current location in the Back Bay — in the heart of the city, but close to hospitals, businesses, shopping, fashion and entertainment.
In 1975, Bay State was initially authorized to grant Associate degrees by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 1989, Bay State became accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). In 2004, Bay State was authorized by the state and NEASC to grant Bachelor’s degrees in Business, Fashion, and Entertainment Management.
More than 60 years after its founding, Bay State still operates under the vision of its founders. The College provides America's leading employers with skilled graduates who are professionally trained and educated for the profession they desire.
