The Starr Career Development Center supports student career readiness by providing opportunities to define career goals, engage in experiential learning, and gain professional experience. The Center also develops mutually beneficial partnerships with Baruch faculty and staff, alumni, employers, and community partners, which facilitates the growth and success of a diverse talent pipeline. As a result, students can acquire the tools and the confidence to independently engage in lifelong professional development and career management in a diverse and global workforce.
