About the University

Baruch College is ranked among the region's and nation's top colleges by U.S. News & World ReportForbesPrinceton Review, and others. Our campus is within easy reach of Wall Street, Midtown, and the global headquarters of major companies and non-profit and cultural organizations, giving students unparalleled internship, career, and networking opportunities. The College's more than 18,000 students, who speak more than 110 languages and trace their heritage to more than 170 countries, have been repeatedly named one of the most ethnically diverse student bodies in the United States.

Baruch College is increasingly recognized for supporting the social mobility of students from a wide range of cultural and economic backgrounds.
