"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."

"So far I have been very impressed with Baruch's professors. They are extremely intelligent and knowledgeable in their fields. They are also approachable, hands-on, understanding and accessible. The professors are what has made my experimence worth every minute thus far. I have a baby at home and knowing I am getting a quality education makes the nights I don't get to put him to sleep that much more manageable because I know it will be better for us in the long run."

"Baruch College offers a great value for students interested in getting their masters. They offer evening and weekend classes to accommodate students that work full-time. Our professors are accomplished in their field of expertise and deliver interesting classes. My classmates are smart, motivated, and bring a diverse mix of experiences into the classroom. I highly recommend the MPA program."

"The overall MPA program at Baruch is a superior program that pushes their students to work hard to achieve our academic and professional goals. My professors at Baruch have gone out of their way to help me start formulating my own nonprofit organization, and have given me access to resources and recommendations to guide me through this process. Although the administrators and advisors are not always available to help their students with lack of classes and schedules, I do appreciate their help when they are available. My experience with the faculty, security guards, and even cafeteria assistants has been positive as they are always smiling and willing to help the students. The atmosphere of the school is a lively environment where students are constantly putting their education first. The surrounding area is accommodating to the student body and always put forth a positive attitude. Being a CUNY school, tuition is highly affordable but textbooks, transportation, and traveling essentials make it an expensive school experience. I highly recommend the MPA program to any student who wishes to go into the public or nonprofit sector, but wish they had more classes available for their students."
