"The students consist to a large extent of people working full-time, and thus most lectures take place in the evening. This represents a good networking opportunity with professionals who work in public administration and with non-profits. It is a public university and as such, the buildings have "character". Nevertheless, the quality of education is solid, and faculty and administration have a great attitude and will do their best to assist students with whatever problems they might have. The spirit at Baruch College is excellent."

"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."

"The MPA program in Baruch is a good tool in learning domestic policy and public administration, most specifically city public administration. The courses offered are very concentrated on learning about city policies. It is a very good program for someone who is looking to learn more about how to effective administer policies in the domestic level."

"I have just begun my graduate studies at Baruch College of Public Affairs, therefore I do not have much of an opinion of the pros and cons of the graduate program. However, by attending the "meet & greet" and orientation I can say that thus far I have been impressed with the appearance of support available. As a new student, it is easy to become lost very quickly however I was introduced to all departments from technology to the library, career and counseling services. The two events that I attended promoted networking and social life but also included the faculty which gave me the impression that the professors are committed to spending time getting to know their students.The only con I have so far with my limited experience at Baruch is that there is virtually no help with financial aid. There are no grants awarded to graduate students which is disappointing because living in New York City, one of the most expensive cities in the country, trying to pay for graduate school can be the source of much stress."

"I enjoy the Public Administration program at Baruch. The professors are knowledgeable and dedicated in assisting students with understanding the work material. However their is a lack of assistance available for part time graduate students.Graduate students who work full time jobs and attend courses during the evening must take time out of there day if they want to speak to an adviser or to the financial aid office to discuss any financial opportunities. Baruch fails to communicate any of this information via their mass blast emails to students."

"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."

"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."

"I Love Baruch. It is in the heart of New York City and it is affordable. Baruch offers a great program in public administation with great professors. So far there is nothing negative about the school. Overall, great school."

"The MPA program at Baruch College is great. The faculty have direct experience in their fields of instruction, and it's the best program to get the most bang for your buck. It also caters to working individuals like myself."
