History of Bay State College

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.

In 1961, Bay State moved to its current location in the Back Bay — in the heart of the city, but close to hospitals, businesses, shopping, fashion, and entertainment.

In 1975, Bay State was initially authorized to grant Associate degrees by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 1989, Bay State became accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)*. In 2004, Bay State was authorized by the state and NEASC* to grant Bachelor’s degrees in Business, Fashion, and Entertainment Management.

Seventy years after its founding, Bay State still operates under the vision of its founders. The College provides America's leading employers with skilled graduates who are professionally trained and educated for the profession they desire.

*Bay State College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE, formerly NEASC).

This program is where design meets business.

Every season, fashion designers show their latest creations, some of which eventually make it from runways to store racks all over the world. It’s the job of the merchandise manager to choose the best of these designs, mixing and matching colors, sizes, and silhouettes to provide the customers what they want at a price they’re willing to pay. It’s a challenging and rewarding career, especially when combined with the creative skills and conceptual knowledge of a fashion designer. This program is where design meets business.

Bay State College offers a unique educational combination with its program, the Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising with a concentration in Fashion Design. This program effectively prepares students to approach the fashion industry as both a creative enterprise and a business. Through an interdisciplinary approach, students are able to focus on areas of fashion merchandising, including product development, visual merchandising, global marketing, and retail strategies, in combination with creative and conceptual hands-on design work. The Fashion Design program includes a semester-long internship, which helps to further strengthen the students’ expertise as they gain valuable industry experience and develop a professional network as well as the business savvy needed to turn great designs into successful clothing and accessory lines....
