Post Graduate Outcomes
2015 - 2016 Academic Year

Overview

Baruch College is a dynamic community of scholars and distinguished professionals who educate one of the most diverse student populations in the United States. Baruch students, or their parents, come from 160 countries, and they speak more than 120 different languages in their homes. Over a third of its students are the first in their families to graduate from college, 60% of them come from homes with a family income of $40,000 or less, and almost 84% of them graduate with no federal student loan debt.

The Starr Career Development Center (SCDC) is the primary provider of undergraduate career services for more than 15,000 students at Baruch College. It shares the College’s mission to be a “catalyst for the social, cultural, and financial mobility of a diverse student body.” The Center provides career-related counseling, workshops, and leadership-development programs to help students clarify academic and career goals, establish career plans, develop job search skills, and make successful career transitions.

The SCDC builds relationships with alumni and employers to develop internship, job, and career opportunities, and create strategic partnerships to help students to develop co-curricular experiences that will clarify their career interests, enable them to become ethical leaders, and ensure they are competitive in their future pursuits.

Each year, the Center collects post-graduate outcomes for graduating Baruch College undergraduates starting just prior to commencement and continuing through the end of December. This data forms the basis of this report.
