The Baltimore International College (BIC), founded in 1972, was a private, non-profit college located in Baltimore, Maryland. It offered specialized degree programs in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management.[1] The college was taken over by Stratford University in January 2012. Stratford University finally closed operations due to bankruptcy in February 2023.


BIC was accredited by the American Culinary Federation. It lost its accreditation from the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools on August 31, 2011, due to unaddressed issues from its 2007 review.[2] BIC was acquired by Stratford University in January 2012, and the former campuses are now Stratford campuses, a university that finally closed down in 2023.
