Ideally situated in the beautiful Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan, Baruch College is within walking distance of many iconic locations, including The Empire State and Flatiron Buildings, as well as hundreds of restaurants and shopping destinations.
Billed as the top financial center of the world, New York City offers immense cultural and employment opportunities for our students. Baruch College is the only comprehensive I-O psychology program located in New York City.
New York City has the greatest concentration of I-O psychologists in the United States. Our students are able to build large professional networks with our alumni and other I-O and HR professionals in our field while they are in the program. While completing their dissertations, students have the option of pursuing internships at Fortune 500 corporations (e.g., J.P Morgan Chase, IBM, Pepsi, Citi) and the major consulting firms (e.g., Aon, Mercer). These internships prepare them for both academic and applied jobs.
Our Manhattan location allows the program to host speakers from around the world and from global companies based in the New York City area. Additionally, students can participate in local professional organizations such as METRO which is one of the oldest I-O psychology associations in the United States.
Living in New York City affords the opportunity to explore world-class cultural institutions, art, music, theater, and international cuisines. Simultaneously, it is within a short commute to the mountains of upstate New York and the beaches of the Hamptons and the Jersey Shore.
