Located in the heart of Manhattan, in one of the world's most global cities, Baruch College has connections that span the continents. Its diverse student body, which traces its roots to more than 160 countries, sets the tone for international activities that incorporate study abroad, faculty research, and collaborations. As detailed in its Global Strategic Plan, Baruch is focusing at every level — from curriculum to research and student affairs — to create opportunities for global experience. For example, the Zicklin School of Business' Weissman Center for International Business houses the Global Student Certificate Program, and the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences will offer a minor in Global Studies. These, and the other activities listed below, detail our commitment to the global education of our students.
