Baruch is conveniently located in the city and the tuition is affordable.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2012

It's good for the accounting field. It has name recognition that companies would know. It's relatively cheap for a college so you're not burden with too much student loans.

It's an okay school. It wasn't that difficult to get good grades.

Degree: Real Estate Management
Graduation Year: 2018

Amazing value for a graduate business program. Like all schools, you get out what you put in. Education is second to none if you apply yourself and take advantage of all of the opportunities presented.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Zicklin School of Business has a very supportive staff that are willing to help. My courses have helped expand my thoughts. The school is also in the middle of New York City. There are so many opportunities and connections to be made. However, the down side, is that financial aid is not really offered. The cost of living in NYC is unbelievable. Having to pay for school in addition to rent and daily living expenses is such a strain.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is small and therefore you get a lot of support and attention. There is a lot of critical thinking and self introspection involved. The role plays and exercises given have only help to advance my understanding of Mental health counseling in a positive way. The only con is that the program is relatively new and may not have as much experience as others.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Very accessible graduate program; lots of access to the City Cons: Old structures in disrepair; quality of facilities not up to par
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Professors are leaders in their fields and have real world wisdom to impart. The college is always keeping us abreast of job and internship openings. The program could stand to be more selective, however. Some of my peers could stand to read a newspaper daily or take public speaking and debate courses.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a general MBA graduate student. Baruch offers great opportunities for networking throughout the year. There are a wide variety of course options, however important courses are not always offered at convenient times. The teachers are distinguished, informative, experienced, and willing to help. Overall, my experience with Baruch has been positive.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

This is an affordable graduate program in the heart of Manhattan. The professors and quality of the classes are all top-notch. A lot of the professor in the MPA program also give classes in the MBA; in addition to that make of them teach at NYU and Columbia. My biggest issue comes from the fact that they do not have an adequately staffed or structured career assistance program. There has been high turnover in this department in the last couple of years. Due to this students are not receiving proper guidance in the job search process.
