Committed to career-focused education

“We are proud to have our on-site programs also recognized by U.S. News & World Report,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. “We are committed to providing the same quality, career-focused education to all of our students—whether they study in person, online, or through a combination of both, particularly during this unique time.”


President Smith continued, “We are equally pleased to be included on the Economic Diversity and Least Debt Lists. Berkeley has historically had a diverse student population, which contributes to a holistic educational experience for every student. We recognize that a college education is a significant investment. Berkeley strives to keep our programs affordable. We also require financial literacy training to assist our students when making important life decisions. For nearly 90 years, Berkeley has helped students overcome challenges in their path to the graduation stage and successful careers. We appreciate the recognition of these efforts by U.S. News & World Report and look forward to continuing to fulfill our mission in the communities we serve.”
