Professors are great! Staff and students great!
Resources are awesome I love this school! The main thing that I appreciate here is the professionalism. I feel as if I was taught the competitive positive attitude in a corporate setting among peers. The classes are competitive and rewarding I greatly appreciated the reading material and clarity of all curriculum material and management. I made many acquaintances and friends from diverse origin and culture. I currently own my own business and have doubled my annual profit and lowered my and lowered my expenses by over 10% within the last 6 months based on skills I have learned here. I am pursuing real estate as well as learning about investing and how to obtain current information within the global economy.

Baruch is an inexpensive business school that has been rising in the ranks in prestige. Many students go on to work for excellent companies such as the Big 4 or investment banks, and even do so while being students themselves. That being said, this contributes to the lack of student culture there. People are often pressured to balance academics while sometimes working full-time, so it can be hard to participate in extracurriculars. There are certainly plenty of clubs that do hold interesting events, but business clubs do seem to make up the majority. For those that do dorm, it is almost as if they are commuting as well, because Baruch is located on 25th Street, but the dorms are on 96th Street. All in all, it is a school where you can get a good education at a low cost, but a strong student culture is not one of the strongest facets.
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!
