Baruch College’s EOC Program Featured in
The New York Times
The Baruch College Executives On Campus program and the Executive-Student Partnership, its mentoring program, were featured in The New York Times on January 1, 2006.
The EOC was founded in 2000 by five Baruch alumni from the class of 1955: Dick Merians, chairman and chief executive of Hygrade Integrated Logistics Systems, in Secaucus, N.J.; Norman Brust, a retired marketing and corporate communications executive; Paul Koren, a certified public accountant; Joel B. Zweibel, a retired lawyer specializing in corporate reorganizations; and Allen G. Schwartz, a former federal district court judge.
Initiated in 2003, the mentoring program matches Baruch alumni with students seeking jobs, providing students with an invaluable opportunity to learn directly from successful executives and business leaders.
“The mentoring program is vital,” said Marilyn Kahn, director of EOC. “The mentors are dedicated role models who guide and assist Baruch’s students in achieving their potential and succeeding in their job search. These volunteers have had a dramatic impact on the students’ networking and communication skills.”
Interest in mentoring Baruch students has grown beyond alumni to the general business community. The program currently has more than 60 mentors, including executives from the top companies in America.
