Baruch College Ranks #12 Nationwide for Return-on-Investment Among Public Institutions
February 6, 2020
Baruch College places #12 nationwide among public institutions for return-on-investment, according to Princeton Review’s Top 75-Best Value Colleges.
The ranking draws from Princeton Review’s highly selective list of “200 Best Value Colleges” for its 2020 guidebook that recognizes academic excellence, affordable cost, and strong career opportunities for graduates.
What Baruch Students Say
In its profile of Baruch—which includes input from student surveys—Princeton Review notes that undergraduates come from all over the world and the College is “full of bright and ambitious minds.” Students state they have access to a “vast amount of resources,” and the institution’s established networking relationships with many companies in New York “creates even more opportunities for internships as well as job opportunities.”
Students also point to “an impressive number of career-developing programs on campus that are free of charge and readily available to all students,” and “it is clear that the professors at Baruch have first-hand experience in the material they are teaching.”
“Greatest City in the World”
Princeton Review calls attention to how Baruch College and its three schools—Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the Zicklin School of Business— take full advantage of being located in “the greatest city of the world.”
