BGU is committed to academic excellence, quality spiritual growth and community transformation.

About a year ago, Dr. Carmela Nanton introduced BGU’s business students to BSG: The Business Strategy Game, Competing in a Global Marketplace. This is where Business Schools located worldwide have students work with faculty to submit quality Business Simulation Projects. These are then ranked by BSG in various areas of quality. Dr. Nanton is an educator, author, international speaker, workshop leader, and scholar. She is passionate about adult education, multicultural issues, community-building, and global management and leadership.

Recently, students ranked among the Global Top 100, Bakke Graduate University ranked #36. The students competed against 4,558 teams from 283 colleges/universities participating in the simulation world-wide. BSG continues to rank highly as it gives students as close to a real business life experience as possible. This ranking puts BGU’s Business School on the map as one of the leading Business schools globally.
In September, 2010, The Minister of Education, the Hon. Desmond Bannister officially welcomed Bakke Graduate University officials to The Bahamas during its launch in Freeport, Grand Bahama. Unlike traditional liberal arts programs, prospective candidates will have a unique educational experience as they study for a set of Degrees that are focused on global urban change: the MBA: Masters of Business Administration, the MASCE: Masters of Arts in Social and Civic Entrepreneurship or the MAGUL: Masters of Arts in Global Urban Leadership. Students can also pursue a DMIN Degree (Doctor of Ministry). The school will be launched in Abaco later this month and in New Providence this summer. BGU is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools which is recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE), the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) and the Public Service Commission in The Bahamas.

The learning process is accomplished through a hybrid program offering students the opportunity to study online, in cities around the world (wherever there is a BGU cohort allowing students to participate in experiential learning) and in traditional classroom sessions conducted by a diverse team who will travel into Freeport. These are all internationally acclaimed Christian educators representing the United States, Europe, The Caribbean, China, The Philippines, and Africa.
