Bakke Graduate University (BGU) is a US accredited graduate school for leaders who are seeking to facilitate positive social transformation of urban areas. BGU includes a school of Christian theology for church leaders; a school of urban studies for non-profit (NGO & NPO) leaders, and a newly forming school of business for leaders wanting to focus on our three primary customer groups, plus help us with how Government leaders in China & Vietnam understand our work. Almost half of BGU’s faculty, students, and course related city immersion tours are outside of North America. The school is named for Ray and Dennis Bakke who in the late 20th century respectively pioneered movements to give decision-making power to people in disadvantaged neighborhoods and front-line employees. As a result, BGU has been able to expand into regions in places such as Asia and Africa by developing platforms for local leaders to have the primary voice in how students in their region are trained.
