Overview

Who We Are

Located in the heart of New York City, Baruch College delivers excellence in public higher education through 3 acclaimed schools -- the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Public Affairs, and Zicklin School of Business. Baruch offers a rich array of degree and non-degree programs that prepare students for professional and personal success.

Baruch College is part of a tradition that dates back more than 160 years to the founding of the Free Academy, the very first free public institution of higher education in the US. Today, as a thriving, urban, multicultural institution, and a senior and the most selective college within The City University of New York (CUNY), Baruch attracts motivated students from more than 170 countries. The ability, drive, and professional education students acquire at Baruch have established the college's reputation for excellence.

The Zicklin School of Business

Baruch's Zicklin School of Business has earned a national and international reputation for excellence. Established in 1919 as City College's School of Business and Civic Administration, Zicklin offers nationally ranked undergraduate programs, MBA programs, specialized master's degree programs, and doctoral programs. The school routinely wins recognition for innovation, excellence, diversity, and value.

The Zicklin faculty includes internationally recognized authorities in business and management fields, noted scholars and authors, sought-after consultants, and distinguished educators. Many are regularly called upon for expert commentary by media outlets such as "The Wall Street Journal," "The Washington Post," "USA Today," CNBC, and CNN.

The Weissman School of Arts and Sciences

The Weissman School of Arts and Sciences is a vibrant intellectual and cultural center with numerous interdisciplinary programs and a wide range of majors. Weissman students are encouraged to think critically, write clearly, and speak eloquently about the new knowledge acquired in the humanities and social and natural sciences -- from the performing arts to mathematics, from journalism to environmental studies. The Weissman School offers exceptional opportunities to broaden one's education and expertise through affiliation with the Zicklin School of Business and the School of Public Affairs.

The School of Public Affairs

The School of Public Affairs (SPA) prepares Baruch students for careers in public service; whether it is in the fields of government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), health care institutions, schools, or even the private sector. SPA provides students with the analytical skills, the organizational capacity, and the political sophistication to effect change at the local, regional, national, or international level.

SPA is home to about 1,200 degree students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. The acclaimed school offers the Master of Public Administration (MPA), the Master of Science in Education Administration (MSEd), the Master of Science in Higher Education Administration (MSEd-HEA), the Graduate Certificate in School Building Leadership (SBL), and the Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs. SPA is closely attentive to the needs of professionals who have already launched their careers and, to that end, offers the Executive Master of Public Administration (XMPA) for mid-career professionals.

At SPA students have opportunities to intern with leading governmental and non-governmental organizations, to see how a city develops and manages a budget of almost $70B/US, and to attend out-of-class programs with leading scholars and practitioners from all over the world.
