“Baruch College provides great bang for you buck in NYC”
October 2017CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

Great location in midtown, very supportive career center with lots of resources, great professors

Downers

Very little on campus recruiting is done at Baruch, no well established network

Comments

Baruch is a great school in terms of getting bang for you buck. However, you will have to be willing to put in extra effort as a lot of companies do not recruit at Baruch compared to other schools like NYU and Columbia. But they do have a wide range of career services available and you can succeed if you're willing to work hard.

Because it is a business school, everything it offers is related for business and career development.

Downers

The facilities are relatively old, sometimes the campus seem to be crowded.

Here you can make friends with professionals, they can be your teachers or advisors.

Students are very competitive, some professors are awful (they have no interest knowing their students or helping students whatsoever, some just read their powerpoint presentations, some never reply to e-mails from students asking questions, and I have had professors that did not want to share how they graded one of my final test). Some other professors are really good, they make real efforts to know your name and help you succeed. I've had great experience with female professors in particular, they were really nice to other female students not like some male professors who can't even look another female student in the eyes! Team work is strongly encouraged and case studies are usually great. Academic advising is not great. Nobody warns you in advance if your GPA starts to get low. They put you right away on probation. They don't prepare students enough for graduate studies.

Quality of Life

Don't know, I don't spend much time on campus, I have my own apt in Brooklyn.

Admissions

Standard application questions, one essay, GMAT scores, 2 letters of recommendation.
