Bay Atlantic University


Bay Atlantic University leadership has announced the recognition of accreditation from the New England Commission of Higher Education, making BAU the first university in the area to receive the honor.  NECHE, as the commission is commonly known, is one of the premier accreditors in higher education, having the likes of Harvard, Yale and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology among its ranks.  Bay Atlantic University has now joined the club.

Located on H street NW, just steps from the White House, BAU is a private, not-for-profit university, offering bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration & Management, Economics & Finance, Political Science & International Relations, and Information Technology, as well as master’s degrees in Business Administration, Cyber Security, and Big Data Analytics.  This accreditation certifies that the academic standards at Bay Atlantic meet the same rigorous benchmarks of some of the biggest names in higher ed.

University President, Dr. Sinem Vatanartiran said, “After more than two years of careful preparation and anticipation, Bay Atlantic University is honored to make this announcement.  For our students, this means their degrees will hold the stamp of approval from a highly respected commission, which will open many doors for them.  For our faculty and staff, this means that our hard work and principled application have been rewarded.  Congratulations to all our community here at Bay Atlantic.”
