Bay State College

Boston, Massachusetts, United States
In a city full of colleges and universities, one school has been Boston’s best-kept secret for more than 65 years. In that time, Bay State College has built a reputation for offering a unique, high-quality curriculum for the serious student. 

Bachelor's programmes



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. 


For the past 70 years, Bay State College has been guided by 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.


In our commitment to their academic and professional advancement, our students are given the opportunity to intern at some of the best companies in the nation, while networking with employers and alumni who can open doors to some of the Northeast’s best career opportunities.


Bay State College's Career Services team works with students from the moment they step foot on campus.  They are available to help find you an internship, prepare for interviews, and eventually help you find a job once you graduate. Their guidance will even be available to you beyond your time here at Bay State.
