In 1911, Eldon E. Baker founded Baker Business University. In 1965, Robert Jewell purchased Flint’s Baker Business University and brought both schools under a single management group. In 1974, the two colleges received authorization to grant the associate of business degree. Baker Business University became Baker Junior College. In 1983, an Owosso branch of Baker Junior College was established on the recently-acquired property of the former John Wesley College. In 1985, after each receiving regional accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the three campuses merged to form the Baker College System. Now known as the Baker College System, it is the largest independent college in Michigan, with over 35,000 students in more than 150 programs at 16 on ground locations as well as Baker’s virtual campuses.
