BedOAK Global Academy was founded as an institute with the goal of advancing the professional and personal ambitions of its students by providing a demanding, yet supportive educational experience. BedOAK Global Academy is an affiliate institute of BedOAK Global Limited. BedOAK challenges its students to exceed their highest ambitions, fosters the mature development of values and deepens a desire to help shape the world.

BedOAK brings to our students, programs that are at the intersection of the liberal arts, science, and technology. Our education is defined as liberal in the sense of an education that is “liberating” – liberating the mind to think freely. One of the great challenges facing higher education in the next century will be related to the type of education that our young people will receive. The increasing demands on our educational system to educate for the skills required by the information age has often resulted in an emphasis on higher education towards technical skills at the expense of the liberal arts and sciences. At BedOAK, we provide our students with the right balance.

BedOAK has ties to people from virtually all continents of the globe and seeks to nurture truly global citizens. Our students are provided with a rigorous, intense education that both disciplines and expands the mind. Students develop a lifelong desire to learn and grow while also acquiring skills and knowledge necessary for success in their professional lives. At the heart of this education is the General Requirement, which exposes all our students to primary fields of inquiry and the cultural values that shape our world. We expect our students to perform at the highest level and set demanding standards in the classroom and virtual environments.

Our students are expected to improve the common good by utilizing their skills and knowledge to promote tolerance, compassion, and social justice. The curriculum is designed to engage students with important social concerns, both domestic and international, and prepare them to lead as informed citizens, socially responsive professionals, and active members of the community. This is the reason our slogan is “Transforming Lives, Advancing Knowledge for Development.”

BedOAK, with its emphasis on small classes and a professionally oriented teaching faculty, is an ideal institute in which students can capitalize on the values and benefits of liberal arts, science, and technology education. As a small institute, we provide a sound education, where teaching for the faculty holds the primary rewards.
