Baruch College was once again included in Forbesmagazine’s just-released annual listing of “America’s Top Colleges.” Baruch is ranked #244 overall, up 36 spots from last year. Baruch is also ranked #101 in the Northeast, up four spots from last year, and #11 in the “Best Value” category.

Methodology: For the seventh year, Forbes partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP) to develop the “America’s Top Colleges” rankings. The Forbes list of 650 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by focusing on the Return on Investment (ROI). CCAP gathered data from a variety of sources including PayScale.com and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). CCAP used 12 factors to calculate these rankings, each of which falls into one of five general categories: Student Satisfaction (25%), Post-Graduate Success (32.5%), Student Debt (25%), Graduation Rate (7.5%), Academic Success (10%).
