An education at Baruch is one of NYC's tightly-held secrets. Whether in-state or out, the caliber of education received for the reasonable cost of tuition is a real deal. Good (sometimes great) professors, friendly colleagues, and an active Student Life Office makes Baruchan all-around good experience. Glad I transferred!
Review CUNY Baruch College
I'm a transffering student to Baruch College for this fall semester. I already visited the college and toured around the school. I have to say that the accessibility and convenience of the college are the main features. And also for the students who want to major in Finance and Accounting, this college is the best choice in New York City. Baruch has one of the best business school in town. Their business school, Zicklin's school, is rated the best for Accountancy and Finance. Therefore, I gave CUNY Baruch College four stars for the above reasons.
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.
