Post Graduate Outcomes
2014 - 2015 Academic Year
Overview
Baruch College continues the tradition of the original “Free Academy” established in 1847 to educate the sons and daughters of immigrants. Originally known as City College downtown, it was endowed by Bernard Baruch, a philanthropist and adviser to Presidents, and in 1969 it became one of the nine senior colleges of The City University of New York. Over a third of its students are the first in their families to graduate from college, 60% of them come from homes with a family income of $40,000 or less, they come from 170 countries and speak 110 languages, and 84% of them graduate with no federal student loan debt.

The STARR Career Development Center is the primary provider of undergraduate career services at Baruch and collects post-graduate outcomes for graduating Baruch College undergraduates starting just before graduation in May and continuing through the end of December.

Baruch College continues to be ranked among the nation’s top colleges academically, as the “Best Bang for Your Buck” relative to tuition cost and to the jobs and salaries obtained by our graduates, as well as to the quality of its career services (Princeton Review, 2015).
