Global Student Certificate

The Global Student Certificate (GSC) program is an interdisciplinary, co-curricular undergraduate certificate program designed to train a new generation of business leaders. It is necessary for college graduates to be internationally competent in today’s global economy. The GSC program exposes Baruch students to the distinct resources available only in New York City as well as training in intercultural, communication and leadership skills. The program offers participants a unique opportunity to expand their cultural knowledge in the nation’s most diverse college setting.

It is unique in the entire City University of New York system. The Global Student Certificate helps all of Baruch College’s three schools to fulfill their respective strategic missions.

The graduates of this program are the face of the 21st century.”
