My program was an amazing experience ,but it also had its drawbacks. First, the drawbacks: 1. The program doesn't give a normal college experience. There are no dorms, and no after class interactions with classmates. 2. There was a daily commute to NYC. The positives: 1.Unbelievably inexpensive education 2. Top quality instruction and facilities with some highly educated and experienced professors. 3. Although Baruch has no campus per se, Manhattan is your campus. I was eating out regularly at different establishments, most of which were very good. 4. I made a lot of connections with many professional adults at my program 5. Baruch has an amazing alumni base for support.Overall, it is a great school and provides and really great education.

Baruch's MPA program is a great value. It's affordable and well-regarded in New York City, and the faculty are generally excellent. The program is not as rigorous as some others in the NYC area, but if you are truly there to learn, you will come away with an excellent education.

The school is located near several transit lines and is very easy to get to after work. The program itself is designed for working students so there is no interference with with my job. The program directors really try to keep you on track to graduate and the course load is not cumbersome. I did have two unpleasant experiences with new professors. They did not seem to be used to teaching students because they came from practicing in the field but, the experience and advice they gave was a plus. It was a bit frustrating trying to follow their lesson plan and one kept making mistakes. The program overall is good, I would recommend it to others.

I love the location and opportunities available to students since the college is located in such a diverse city. The professors are all knowledgable in their respective areas of study. A con would be not having enough events for the part-time night students. Many seminars, speeches, events etc. are held during work hours, so I am rarely able to attend them.

SPA at Baruch is a great value. Very affordable and designed for students who are also working full-time. There is also a big focus on career development from the very first day. Some classes may not be as rigorous as those at other (more expensive) schools in NYC, but if you're committed to learning, you will have a great experience.

I am very happy with my MSILR program at Baruch. It's an excellent program that prepares students with careers in Labor Relations.

Although its my first semester their and the commute from Long Island to NYC every day is ... not pleasant, the classrooms seem up to date and make use of brand new comps/projectors. Teachers seem knowledgeable. The only downside is not knowing anyone and with no "campus" per se its seems hard to meet people.
