BARUCH COLLEGE CONTINUES UPWARD TREND IN 2006 U.S. NEWS &WORLD REPORT RANKINGS
Baruch Also Cited As “One Of The Best Northeastern Colleges” By The Princeton Review
NEW YORK, August 24, 2005 – In its 2006 rankings of the top U.S. colleges and universities, U.S. News & World Report magazine has cited Baruch College in a number of important categories. Some of the notable citations include:
For the second year in row, Baruch ranks among the top 50 Master’s Universities in the Northeast, and among the top 10 of those institutions that are public.
Also for the second year in a row, Baruch’s undergraduate business program ranked among the top 50 nationally (climbing one notch to #47 in 2006). The undergraduate business program was also ranked among the top 30 of public institutions.
For the seventh consecutive year, Baruch was ranked #1 in diversity among US colleges and universities.
In addition to the rankings offered by U.S. News, Baruch was cited as one of the best colleges in the Northeast in the 2006 edition of the Princeton Review’s Guide to the Best Northeastern Colleges.
Taken together, these accolades underscore the degree to which Baruch is accomplishing its mission of keeping the American dream alive for all students. In particular, the results document the improvement of Baruch’s Zicklin School of Business, which is the largest accredited undergraduate business program in the country. Zicklin had moved up from a ranking of #64 in 2004 to notch two consecutive top 50 rankings. In addition, Baruch’s diversity statistics spotlight how successful the College has been in mirroring the multi-ethnic character of New York itself.
“For students who can meet our standards, especially for those coming from New York’s underserved immigrant and minority communities, Baruch is one of the primary points of entry into the top-tier business and professional worlds,” said Kathleen Waldron, president of Baruch. “As a result, we feel a particular responsibility to create world class programs that tap into the professional and cultural vitality that is unique to this City. It is heartening to know that these efforts are reflected in our rankings.”
