  • Degree: Counseling
"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."

"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."

"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: MPA
"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."

"The accountancy program I am currently enrolled in has both its pros and cons. Majority of them are pros. It has a strong career center that helps prepare students for upcoming interviews and networking events, and the all the professors are the best in their fields. The only con is the large student to teacher ratio in the classrooms."

"I am flex-time MBA student with major in Statistics. It is my first semester in this program. So far, I am highly satisfied with chosen major. I am taking now class "Applied statistics for business decision". As a financial analyst I found this class very useful. During this class I obtain very valuable knowledge that will be necessary in my future workplace."

"What set Baruch College apart from other universities are its pragmatic teaching methods, commendable faculties, and access to an invaluable network of brilliant students. However, the only con is the tuition of the program."

"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 experienced several obstacles during my time at Baruch that I know have been shared by fellow students. There are some awesome professors, mediocre ones, and several that are pretty bad. Some professors are not willing to help, others disorganized and many who have accents that make them hard to understand. The classes themselves are also a toss up and really depend on how well the professor relays the material. The best way to be successful at Baruch is to read and absorb as much material as possible and practice problems related to the information. The hard work pays off and really does make a more well rounded student in the long run."

"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."

"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."
