With the population growth in the 1840′s, both public and private institutions were formed to meet the needs of all its citizens. The former title of Baruch College was the Free Academy because it was created from bills passed in 1847 to promote free education to all men. Bernard M. Baruch, a 1889 graduate, was a financier and economic adviser to American Presidents for over forty years and he maintained a close relationship to the school as well as contributed substantial gifts to the college. The School of Business and Civic Administration of the College of the City of New York was renamed the Bernard M. Baruch School of Business and Public Administration in 1953. In 1968 the college was re-organized and re-named Bernard M. Baruch College.
Located in the heart of Manhattan on 23rd street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue, Baruch College is ranked among the region’s and nation’s top colleges by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, Princeton Review, and others.
