Bay Atlantic University
Bay Atlantic University is a private, non-profit college in the heart of Washington, DC, not far from the White House. It serves both American and international students. Bay Atlantic University is a “New Generation University,” which means that it is “affordable,” “focused,” “global,” “connected,” “central,” and “dynamic,” among other things. We think that everyone, no matter how much money they have, should be able to get a good education. When it comes to education, BAU wants everyone to have the same high-quality opportunities.
By giving degrees in fields that are growing quickly and are in high demand, we give our students the best chance of being successful in their careers and in their lives. We have an insider’s view of the local economy because we are in the nation’s capital. This is why we offer programs in politics, business, and information sciences, which are the three pillars on which the nation’s capital and the global economy rest.
We agree with the idea of education for the whole world. Our school encourages kids to think and act like they are citizens of the world. Because the campus has so many different kinds of students, they can learn about other cultures and points of view through class discussions.
BAU has strong ties to the DC area because of its many business partnerships, large faculty networks, and volunteer work. Our campus takes up the whole city, which puts us close to the most important government offices and embassies in the US and around the world (World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Inter-American Development Bank, etc.). Students can take part in a wide range of activities outside of campus, such as festivals and cultural celebrations. The Dynamic BAU is proud that its curriculum is up to date with the latest changes in the market and in educational theory and practice.
