CUNY Bernard M Baruch College Reviews
Attending Baruch was a challenge. I faced much confusion and the staff seems to never want to help you with anything. You can't even bother calling the office. You actually have to commute to the school to resolve any issues, and even then you still might not get the problem solved. My professors at this school were phenomenal and truly made this experience something I was able to take away from. Going to school in the city had major advances such as your professors coming from Columbia and NYU so you get Ivey League without coming out of pocket for it. Joining clubs are limited because they meet during the day so if you work full-time you won't be able to even take part. This is a commuter school so many of the students just come to class and go home.
The school provides a quality education at a reasonable price. I was able to graduate with my bachelor's degree debt free which was a major plus. The department itself was great with quality, experienced and well connected faculty. Overall I recommend Baruch College.
Baruch is a very good school for students are interesting in business. The tuition is pretty cheap. Even I worked part time, with financial aid, I enrolled full time and finish my degree in two years. The coursework were challenge, but it is good for your future career. All students are very smart. Professors are intelligent and kind. Strongly recommend this school!
Baruch College had some of the best instructors. My favorite, Professor W. Although the courses were challenging, I found most of what I learned useful in the workplace. However, Baruch was not very diverse. During my attendance at Baruch, the African American and Latino populations were very low. I think it would be great to see a more diverse student body in the future. I did like that Baruch had a swiping ID system to be able to enter the building which made the campus feel very safe. You needed your ID every time you entered either the NV building or the 23rd street building. The elevators are normally packed during the evening so to beat the rush you may want to arrive a few minutes earlier to class especially in the 23rd street building. The financial aid office was always helpful. However, I think that Baruch could have better advertised study abroad and how students could finance study abroad through scholarships. Depending on what you major in, (finance and accounting) seemed to have the highest earning potentials. The networking opportunities are great especially for finance and accounting majors. I am satisfied with the degree that I received and I am grateful for some of the professors I've had that taught me things I could apply outside of the classroom. I do hope that the STARR career center improves with placing more students with internships or perhaps mandate an internship as a graduation requirement.
Baruch College, one of the schools of the City University of New York, was a great school to attend. It is a well known school that is famous as a great business school, that being said the culture at the school is a bit underwhelming. The school prides itself on its diversity but its diversity is mirrored by its isolationism by the diverse cultures. They say that one of the biggest complains about Baruch College students is that they do not know how to communicate, which is completely understandable when you see how these business classes are structured. The school is very good and very rigorous, which I guess is a good thing and a bad thing. Recently the school has begun pushing "group work" activities among the Business school, which I believe is a good way to tackle this.
Baruch College is a hidden gem in the heart of Manhattan. As an alumnist, I have to say, Baruch provided me with all the tools to pursue my dreams. The professors on campus truly care about their students. The campus has a very positive and diverse school climate.
Great place to learn!! I enjoyed meeting and being exposed to newer methods of teaching/learning. Professors were kind and helpful. As students we are the coolest! The labs always had enough room. And most of the time the person next you is very friendly.
Baruch College is a great place to go to school. Their facilities are impeccable and they have the best technology to help you succeed. I think their academic advisement and opportunity for tutoring, or academic help were extremely helpful. I think they need better job placements and career services. The area were the school is located is very urban and diverse, easy to commute to and with lots of good commerce around (stores, restaurants). My time here was excellent.
Baruch College is an institution centered on diversity. This key component to the school's high level of academics is represented in class, clubs, student life, professors, and perspectives. As an English major, I was able to sit in unique classes like African American literature or Prose of Modern Israel, with a plentitude of outlooks represented in each. Professors at Baruch are open minded and respect is mutual between them and students. While Baruch is widely known for its business programs, the same high standard applies to its arts and sciences majors. Through it all, there is one thing that remains clear : the emphasis for an existence in harmonious relations between all.
I think the neighborhood food was the best part of Baruch. Korean BBQ, Indian, Thai... oh, and bubble tea! Everything was mainly focused on business majors, so liberal arts majors were neglected. Otherwise the psychology department probably has some of the best professors in the school. There are club hours on Thursday, so getting a computer in the lab or a seat in the library is difficult during that time is difficult. Otherwise resources available are good, I highly recommend the career center as there are always job postings and the counselors are very good and work well with you.
