“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.

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.

The School provides great connection and lots of opportunities. People are nice in general.

It is way too competitive and there are too much distraction.

MBA requirement classes are about 60-70 students each. Some of the more advanced classes are smaller in size. Professors are quite good so far, several know me personally. Some of the classrooms in the Vertical Campus are disappointing. There are a few different designs of class rooms and I only really like the ones with the desk tables as they give you enough room to use a lap top and write as well. The issues with the non-functioning escalators are a joke. The school 'hopes' to have them fully operational by the end of 2011 when I expect to have graduated. Get used to talking the stairs or waiting ages for the few elevators.

Quality of Life

Baruch is a very large and diverse school with a lot of international students. As I am married I don't 'hang out' at school too frequently. I do like the area of Manhattan it is in as it offers a lot of options for dining and bars. With the exception of the escalators not working, the campus is fine and the library is good. Free Wi-Fi is essential.

Admissions

I took the GMAT, filled out the application, wrote two essays and secured two recommendations. No interviews offered.
