I have grown wholeheartedly at Kingsborough Community College. Governing the Bull & Bear Finance Club, The Society for the Advancement of Managment, the Business Council in conjunction with writing for the school paper and managing a part-time job has provided me endless opportunity. By learning how to manage my time, money, and my overall ability to lead I have influenced the greater student body into taking action otherwise unaccounted for. Through endless delegation and persistence, I was able to secure public funds to renovate the Bull & Bear finance club office and retain guest speakers from multiple industries to articulate the hardships they faced while climbing the corporate ladder. By taking students and faculty thrift shopping on my free time, I successfully transferred the importance of a professional psychical appearance. This taught me to be compassionate, and most importantly congruent. Subsequently, I received a seat on the college's Board of Directors. I have had a blast at Kingsborough and can't wait to move on to Baruch College to do the same.
Review CUNY Baruch College
Career prospects are extremely high if you are a business student here. Hundreds of employers actively recruit students for jobs and internships on campus every year including big names like Citibank, JP Morgan, Bank of America, Bloomberg, IBM, Con Edison, S&P Global, Victoria 's Secret, etc. The alumni is very connected and a lot of the professors themselves are still full-time employees at various firms while teaching as a side job and are more than happy to give firsthand advice about their workplace, connect you with people inside that may be able to help you get in, and offer you opportunities if you've been a good student. The school also offers an internship program that does it's best to connect you with opportunities specific to your interests as well as international opportunities if you want to study abroad. Overall, it's very hard not to get a single job/internship offer here unless you simply don't apply to anything or your grades are extremely bad.
First I would like to say that I am generally a very optimistic individual, so honestly could not speak too poorly about Baruch College. There are positives and negatives to every situation though, and this much be acknowledged. The negatives at Baruch are clear. A quick negatives list: student life is poor--not many people desire to get involved. THERE IS NO MEAL PLAN. You will have to work on budgeting your money. Distance from school if you live in the dorms (again, not terrible though). Academics are difficult, but this can be seen as good or bad. Positives: The dorms are really great, the majority of my friends live here. Definitely a very good set up for Manhattan. Baruch College is a fantastic option for those who desire a business degree. I have met very outstanding, personable professors, although some are clearly better than others. I have made life long friends and have made unbelievable memories. I liked Baruch, but I do plan on transferring for personal reasons.
