New York, NY, June 27, 2006—Baruch College has been ranked the nation's number one producer of minority business management, marketing and related support  baccalaureates in 2006 by "Diverse: Issues in Higher Education" magazine.

Baruch took fourth place as a producer of Hispanic and Asian American business, marketing, and related support undergraduate degrees and ranked as the nation’s fifth producer of African American undergraduates with business and marketing BBAs.

In its June edition,  Diverse: Issues in Higher Education magazine identified the top 100 minority degree producers among undergraduate institutions of higher education.  The data, compiled exclusively for Diverse by Dr. Victor Borden of Indiana University–Purdue University of Indianapolis, is the only national report on the ability of U.S. colleges and universities to award degrees to African American, Latino, Asian American, and Native American students.  Dr. Borden based his analysis on the most recent data from the U.S. Department of Education.

No stranger to the upper echelons of academic rankings, Baruch’s undergraduate business program offered by the College’s Zicklin School of Business was ranked among the top 30 of public institutions in 2006 by U.S. News & World Report, while the College is one of the nation’s best value undergraduate institutions according to the Princeton Review’s America’s Best Value Colleges (2007).
