Our Vision

We are a student-oriented institution with a global vision. Our philosophy is to prepare students with the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the challenges of the future global community using state-of-the-art instructional technologies and teaching methods to create market responsive programs. Long-term success for the university, as well as the establishment of a reputation for quality instruction, will depend upon curriculum development and outcomes measurement. The university’s ability to attract and retain students, the ability of students to meet business and industry requirements, and the satisfaction level of graduates and employers are the critical measures for success.

Core Values

Bay Atlantic University aspires to provide education and scholarship of the highest quality — to advance the frontiers of knowledge and to prepare individuals for life, work, and leadership. Some of us make our contribution by engaging directly in teaching, learning, and research, others, by supporting and enabling those core activities in essential ways. Whatever our individual roles, and wherever we work within Bat Atlantic University, we owe it to one another to uphold certain basic values of the community. These include:

  • Respect for the rights, differences, and dignity of others
  • Honesty and integrity in all dealings
  • Conscientious pursuit of excellence in one’s work
  • Accountability for actions and conduct in the workplace

The more we embrace these values in our daily lives, the more we create and sustain an environment of trust, cooperation, lively inquiry, and mutual understanding — and advance a commitment to education and scholarship, which all of us share.

Furthermore, at Bay Atlantic University we believe that learning is not confined to formal instruction in traditional classrooms. The University deploys various distance learning and telecommunication methods to provide quality educational services worldwide especially for those who are unprivileged or traditionally undeserved.

Global Outreach

International education is a long-standing part of Bay Atlantic University’s global mission, which includes a wide range of initiatives both in the United States and abroad to facilitate the exchange of knowledge across international boundaries. The University was founded on the premise that higher education should rest on a solid foundation of intercultural dialogue between students and faculty from around the globe.

Students at BAU are encouraged to spend some time of their studies abroad, to increase their knowledge about other counties and cultures, as well as about global issues facing all of us today. To this end, students will be able to visit network campuses located in Istanbul, Berlin, and Cyprus.
