NEW YORK, NY — October 1, 2015 — Baruch College was recently ranked one of the “Best Colleges” for overall value by Money Magazine. Baruch ranks #71 on the list of 736 public and private universities surveyed.
Baruch was also listed as one of 50 Best Public Colleges and 10 Commuter Colleges that Give You a World-Class Education.

Methodology: For its “Best Colleges” ranking, Money surveyed 736 schools and ranked them on 21 factors in three categories: Quality of Education, Affordability, and Alumni Earnings. They only ranked colleges that met these four conditions:
- It was a public or not-for-profit four-year college or university.
- It had enough cost, quality and outcomes data available to provide at least moderate confidence in an assessment.
- It was not in financial trouble, as indicated by a below-investment grade rating for its bonds by Moody’s.
- It had a graduation rate at or above the median for its type of school (public or private).
Money Magazine also used data gathered from other resources including PayScale.com.
