Founded in 1897 as the Bay Path Institute, Bay Path’s first location was at the corner of State and Dwight Streets in downtown Springfield, MA. For decades, it experienced both educational and financial success, becoming one of the largest and most respected co-educational business schools in the region. 


It starts with your relationship with your Bay Path professor—a highly personal, highly focused partnership where we blend the classroom (picture online, or even on the lawn of Bay Path on a sunny day) with experiences that take you out of your comfort zone.


The Division of Research and Academic Resources at Bay Path University encourages and supports undergraduate and graduate students in all majors and programs to undertake special research projects, scholarly activities, or creative works under the guidance of a faculty mentor.


The Sullivan Career and Life Planning Center (SCLP) engages students and alumni in mindful career development through a variety of initiatives, inside and outside the classroom.
