Baruch is noteworthy for its commitment to teaching and to research, for its emphasis on communication skills, for its support for lifelong learning, and for its alertness to opportunities to match the College’s activities with the needs of its constituencies.
Specifically, Baruch emphasizes its commitment to a professional education in the business and public affairs disciplines and the necessity of a broad base in the arts and sciences to sustain that commitment. Emphasis is placed on the importance of graduate programs, which account for an increasing proportion of College enrollments, as well as on the faculty research that will sustain and attract students to those programs.

The baccalaureate programs of these schools blend technical career preparation with the development of the intellect and the cultivation of aesthetic and ethical values.
