Baruch College Ranks among 50 Best Universities in New York for 2017 by Focus Report

New York, NY - June 13, 2017- Baruch College ranked #3 in Focus Report’s 50 Best Universities in New York for 2017.  The College topped the list ahead of Colgate University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Vassar College, among others. .

In its description of the College, Focus Report noted that “Baruch College, one of the premier members of New York’s CUNY system, has a reputation that places it on the same level as Columbia, NYU, and many other top New York colleges. Not only is it in the top 15% of universities nationwide, but it also has the largest AASCB-accredited business school in the country and ranks as one of the most ethnically diverse colleges in the U.S. The 18,000 students who call Baruch home for the majority of the year hail from 170 countries and speak 110 languages, guaranteeing that BC students become culturally competent, globally engaged citizens.”

An Expanding List of Top Rankings

This latest ranking adds to Baruch College being consistently recognized for its value and academic excellence. In May, Forbes ranked Baruch as one of the “Best Value Colleges 2017”. This national list looked at not what the ‘best’ school was but “whether a college will deliver a meaningful return on investment.” Princeton Review recently cited Baruch College as one of the “Colleges that Pay You Back: the 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bank for Your Tuition Buck” and Business Insider named the school to its “Best MBA Programs for Under $15,000.”
