One of the City University of New York’s senior colleges, Baruch College’s schools (Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, and the Zicklin School of Business, which is the largest of the three) are located in Manhattan and take full advantage of being in “the greatest city of the world”: Students here have access to “internships, big companies, and...
