Career Opportunities

The major in the Corporate Communication specialization offered by the Department of Communication Studies prepares students for careers in the corporate communication divisions of major corporations, in public relations firms and advertising agencies, in consulting firms, and as communication specialists in the public sector or with nonprofit organizations. Moreover, with the program's strong foundation in business, students may also seek positions in sales and marketing, management, and in corporate training and development.

Students interested in learning more about the field of public relations are encouraged to view the video “What is Public Relations?” VHS 1011 in the Newman Library, Baruch College.

Recent graduates have taken positions with such companies as Burson-Marsteller, Morgan Stanley, Madison Square Garden, Dun & Bradstreet, NYU Medical Center, Miramax, and Financial World Magazine.
