The Zicklin School of Business can trace its roots back nearly 100 years. In 1919, City College established a School of Business and Civic Administration on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, offering its first MBA program one year later. This school was renamed in 1953 in honor of alumnus Bernard M. Baruch, noted statesman and financier, who was instrumental in the College’s formation.
In 1968, Baruch became an independent senior college offering the only AACSB accredited business programs within the City University of New York system. It has since grown to become the largest collegiate school of business in the nation.
