Study Abroad


Baruch students are studying abroad again! Over 100 Baruch students will be studying abroad this fall!

We welcome this development, but the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, and will continue to cast its shadow over the full-scale resumption of study abroad. Our exchange programs must be officially cleared to “relaunch,” and 13 exchange programs in 11 countries have been officially relaunched. We anticipate that many others will be approved in the current application cycle. Students who apply to study abroad through Direct Enrollment or on Sponsored Study Abroad Programs are currently not required to petition to travel.

However, a new wave of the pandemic might force a change in these policies. As a result, we are proceeding resolutely, but cautiously, in planning for study abroad during the 2023 January Intersession and spring 2023 semester. For the coming application cycle we will be following a modified version of the “twin-track” approach we have successfully used in the past.

Track 1: Applications to Study Abroad

You should apply to study abroad for 2023 January Intersession and spring 2023 semester as you normally would (i.e. as it there were no COVID). We will process your applications, schedule interviews for exchange programs, give provisional approval of applications, and make nominations for our exchanges. Final approval will be given once study abroad to your destination has been approved. You should carefully consider making any substantial non-refundable financial commitments until we have confirmed that your study abroad will run.

Track 2: Registration at Baruch for Spring 2023

As a precaution, we continue to recommend that you register for courses at Baruch for the spring 2023 semester as you would if you were not planning to study abroad. Once your study abroad destination has been cleared, we will work with you to have you registered for study abroad.


Global learning, or a phrase like it, has become one of the most pervasive watchwords in higher education today. And for good reason: in today’s world of deeply intertwined global relationships, the ability to move easily within and between cultures is becoming not only an increasingly prized qualification for jobs in any number of fields, but has become an indispensable component of a college education in the twenty-first century.

The Baruch College Study Abroad Office is here to help students from all three Baruch Schools who wish to study abroad attain their educational and cultural learning goals. We help them choose their study abroad destination wisely, fit their study abroad experience into their overall college education, and guide them throughout the process of applying to study abroad.

The Study Abroad Office also assists Baruch faculty in developing study abroad programs.

As part of the Weissman Center for International Business, the Study Abroad Office has been promoting the aims of global education at Baruch for nearly two decades. We look forward to continuing to help the entire Baruch College community achieve these important aims both today and in the future.

When planning your study abroad experience, please keep in mind the deadlines for submitting your Baruch Application to Study Abroad:

October 1 For programs during the January Intersession or Spring Semester*
March 15 For programs during the Summer Session, Fall Semester * or Academic Year

*Please note: Some Baruch exchange programs may have earlier application deadlines. Please check with the Study Abroad Office to find out if your preferred exchange program has an earlier application deadline.
