Baruch College Investment Banking Placement (Using Data)

Baruch College is a public college in New York City and is part of the City of New York (CUNY) system. Baruch has a respectable placement into investment banking, benefitting from its proximity to Wall Street and the top finance firms.

Baruch College is ranked #34 on our investment banking target school list, earning itself a designation as a lower semi-target school. Baruch sends a handful of graduates into the top firms every year but is held back on our rankings by its large school size.

Baruch College is home to the Zicklin School of Business, a highly-ranked business school that offers programs for both undergraduates and graduates.

Baruch College has an impressive Elite Firms Hires % of 55%, meaning over 1/2 of all graduates go into one of the top banks on Wall Street. This is largely driven by Baruch's impressive pipeline into J.P. Morgan, which makes up 45% of all investment banking hires.

Baruch is held back by its low Undergrad % Placement score of 0.31%. We note that Baruch also has very modest placement into elite boutiques and private equity.
