Numbers Add Up for Baruch Team

The second time proved to be the charm for the Baruch College chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA). After failing to earn a place in last year’s KPMG National Student Case Study Competition, the team clinched the number one spot this year, besting NABA teams from nine other colleges and universities nationwide.

Her intelligence, dynamism, and creativity bode extremely well for the success of our program and its students.
