Baruch College Named One of the Top Public Colleges in U.S. by Business First

#3 ranking in New York State, #33 out of 505 public colleges in America

Baruch College is among the top public colleges in America, according to a new ranking released by Business First, which analyzed 505 public colleges across the country.

The business publication ranked Baruch College:  

  • #3 in New York State
  • #33 nationally, up six spots from a year ago

According to Business First, the highest scores went to schools with “highly selective admissions processes, strong retention and graduation rates, impressive earnings by alumni, generous resources, affordable tuitions and housing costs, diverse faculties and student bodies, and economically robust communities.”

Focus: The least expensive path for best educational experience

Business First looked to identify the public universities and colleges that offer the best educational experiences to their students. According to Business First, “the rankings were limited to public schools because those institutions generally offer the least expensive path toward a college degree.”

The publication rated public universities and colleges in the following eight categories: selectivity, advancement, prospects, resources, costs, diversity, community, and past. Learn more about the methodology.
