All About Baruch College


[upbeat drumming] [narrators]
New York City; just 303
square miles of rock and sand, but home to more than 8.3
million people in the city
proper with an additional 14 million
in the metropolitan area, and a
gross domestic product of 1.8 trillion dollars. New York ranks
first among the world’s cities
in global economic power, first in
attracting capital, first in
attracting business, and first in tourism. If
all of the 52 million tourists who visited New York in
2012 were a nation, they would be the
24th largest in the world between
South Africa and Italy. And they come to see this. But New York is more than
skyscrapers and theater,
coastline and restaurants, museums, concert halls, and commerce. It is also home to more than
43,000 non-governmental
organizations. A government sector in the United States, second only to the federal
government in Washington D.C.,
and it is home to universities with well over 100
institutions enrolling almost half a million students. By far the largest of these is
the City University of New York, with 280,000 students on 24 campuses. CUNY comprises the full
spectrum of academic study and
creative productivity, from engineering to dance, from
architecture to poetry, to nanotechnology, to Hispanic
culture. CUNY is a leader in research,
pedagogy, and community
engagement. And the most distinguished
campus of this great university,
home to its largest school of business and its only school of
public affairs, both tightly linked
to one of the nation’s finest programs in
arts and sciences is Baruch College. Located in Manhattan’s Gramercy
Park neighborhood, most of
Baruch’s 17,500 students prepare for leadership
roles in business, government, policy making, cultural affairs and
nonprofit management. Their perspective is global, tightly
connected to the larger world
and nurtured with a keen appreciation for
history, culture, and the arts. Let’s look at Baruch’s three schools. The Weissman School of Arts and
Sciences. Undergraduate Education at
Baruch begins in the Weissman
School where students, regardless of their eventual
majors, receive a background in
the liberal arts necessary to become sound thinkers, effective
communicators, and thoughtful
members of society. Weissman is home to 13
departments and more than 2,000
undergraduate majors. The school also offers master’s
degrees in communications
studies, counseling psychology, industrial and organizational
psychology, and financial
mathematics. The Zicklin School of Business.
The Zicklin School of Business
is the United States’ largest AACSB accredited school of
business. The Zicklin School
prepares students in all of the traditional business
disciplines, including
accountancy, marketing, management, statistics, and
information systems. The Zicklin
School’s international business programs
linked to universities and
corporations throughout the world to provide a truly global
business education. The School of Public Affairs. The School
of Public Affairs is one of the United
States’ largest and most distinguished
programs, preparing students for
careers in government and other public
sector organisations. SPAs
faculty are award winning scholars and
accomplished practitioners, able
to provide students with a vital mix of rigorous theory
and real world experience in
the management of public institutions and the
development of successful
public policy. SPA has relationships with
hundreds of governmental and
non-governmental organizations in New York, from city agencies, to
international NGOs such as the
United Nations. And Baruch recognizes a commitment to
lifelong learning through its
executive programs along with professional education programs.
Continuing and Professional
Studies is home to Baruch College’s
programs in adult’s professional
education. Beyond the traditional role in
crafting programs for the
business community and those seeking workplace skills,
CAPS works in concert with
the college’s degree programs to prepare students
for advanced study. CAPS is a particularly
important resource for
international students who can enroll in CAPS while learning English
prior to taking credit bearing
courses at one of Baruch’s three schools. For
businesses around the globe,
CAPS is a flexible partner in preparing
students for advanced study and
for successful careers beyond college. [DeSena]
I think there are big things
ahead for Baruch because I see just how terrific the student
body is. [Asani]
I find that making friends, as
long as you be who you are, is
very easy around here. [Professor Taylor]
What I love about working with
these students is that they’re
extremely inquisitive. You give them something to read.
They read it, they’re ready to come to class and discuss it. [Birdsell]
Their ambition is contagious.
It’s wonderful to see them go after a prize, be it an academic
prize, a professional prize, a goal that they’ve set for themselves. [Professor Chou]
Baruch is very diverse. It’s famous
for the diversity of the students. [Peck]
We’re always looking to develop
new initiatives that will be of interest not only to our own
students, but to international students. [Professor Casey]
The City University of New York
has the mission of teaching the working, or providing accessible education
to the working people and
immigrants of New York City, so more students reflect the
people of New York, where from all different backgrounds,
racially, ethnically, religiously. [Professor Soo Lee]
You can hear 110
different languages on campus any given day at Baruch College
and 160 countries of origin represented
on campus. [Huss]
And the business school, we’re the
largest business school in the country, being large gives us
the opportunity to offer the
international students a variety of programs, a variety
of majors, a variety of specializations, although the students
at Baruch represent a very
diverse background. International
students have the opportunity
to connect with students, literally from all around the world. [Meneses]
New York City is considered
like the capital of the world, you know so being here you got
the chance to meet many people from
different backgrounds. [Brower]
I’ve had some really great
professors and some really
interesting courses that have helped me understand how
nonprofits work, but have also given me kind of like mentorship
and to how to use my strengths. [Soo Lee]
Our faculty members are as diverse
as, you know, the student body which reflect the values and their
understanding of the global businesses when they go
to class to teach our students. [Huss]
All of the faculty
have a great interest in international studies and
international business. So whether they’re from America
originally or from another
country, they’re all very engaged internationally and by the
programs that we offer outside
the U.S., our faculty often are teaching
outside the U.S. or teaching in
Asia. We’ll soon be teaching in
the Middle East. [Sagiroglu]
Most of them are working in the
industry at the same time teaching at school so it’s first degree
experiences they are sharing with us. [Peck]
As Vice Provost for Global
Strategies, my job is to organize,
coordinate, and, in some cases,
initiate new programs that will enlarge
the global footprint of Baruch College. Two of the countries that we focus on are
Brazil and Turkey, and in both
cases, we’ve signed agreements and started to work
on faculty collaboration. [Clarkson]
We have a strong network with
corporations as well who we’ve worked with and done
customized training for. So we can commonly help our students
once they graduate from our
program, transition back into their
native country and use what
they’ve learned at our campus to be successful, either
in the company that they’re
already working for, finding a new job, or creating their
own business. [Birdsell]
Baruch is at the center of
everything that you care about. [Bernstein]
There are fantastic opportunities
for international students at Baruch. [Sagiroglu]
For international students, Baruch College
should be go-to destination. [narrators]

  4. see the real wilpon teh real madoff hired baruch students. If wilpon is guilty then bloomberg will go down first. Say wilpon is greedy there is no money. Bloomberg actually kept some of the money. what's that american saying lobbying. In that case the entire congress is guilty. At the end of the day, wilpon did more good, he gave the money to rebuild world trade center, the money to build city field and yankee stadium. Like baruch the money is borrowed but the flow of goods is more important, capitalism. Just like my economic professor said socialism lead to corruption. People with money and using it. Boar pigs lambs.

  5. It's not a military school, why they want you to join the marines and you can't even swim. How do you expect to live with yourself when someone is drowning. Run forest run. Save the right people you live, save the wrong people you live with their ghosts
