U.S. News & World Report Ranks Baruch College among the Best Regional Universities in the NorthPlaces in the top eight percent of public and private colleges and universities
September 12, 2022
Baruch moved up two positions and now ranks #14 on U.S. News & World Report’s just-released “2023 Best Regional Universities-North” list, placing it in the top eighth percentile of public and private colleges and universities.
Among public institutions, Baruch secured the #2 spot in New York and #3 for the Northeast region.
Baruch also had top placements in categories including social mobility, campus diversity, and economic diversity, respectively ranking #1, #2, and #13. Compared to the last year, Baruch improved one position in social mobility, jumped three positions for campus diversity, and rose 14 positions in economic diversity, which assesses schools that enroll large numbers of students from low-income families.
“These rankings demonstrate that Baruch is where aspiration and ambition connect with opportunity.” said Baruch College President S. David Wu. “Located in a global capital with unparalleled access to top organizations and enterprises, we empower students to pursue and accelerate their dreams, enabling them to transform their future, their professions, and their communities.”
