NEW YORK, N.Y.

The New York program provides students with an academic focus in business the opportunity to enroll in courses through Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business while interning in New York. Students engage in an independent study related to their internship experience or an aspect of business strategy of interest to them. The flexibility of the program and breadth of course offerings and opportunities for internships make it a valuable experience for international business and management and economics majors.

ACADEMICS AND INTERNSHIPS 

Baruch College, located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, is part of the City University of New York (CUNY) system. The college has more than 14,000 students, 10,000 of whom study business. Baruch’s urban campus includes the Newman Library, with more than 400,000 volumes and 2,500 periodicals dedicated to business, as well as the Wasserman Trading Floor, the most advanced simulated trading floor of its kind. Dickinson program participants have full access to these facilities, and they may also use the athletics center and student academic support services at Baruch College. 

Students enroll in two one-credit Baruch College courses and complete a two-credit independent study for a total of four credits. Participants select a Dickinson faculty advisor to oversee their independent study, consisting of several writing assignments that may be related to an internship or an aspect 

of business strategy. Students are encouraged to work through personal networks, the Baruch College internship office, and the Dickinson College staff and resources to secure an internship, as specific internships are not guaranteed with acceptance to the program. Participants who do not take on an internship will pursue an independent study project and its focus will be in collaboration with a Dickinson faculty advisor. 

HOUSING AND MEALS 

Participants live in furnished, shared accommodations at the 92nd Street Y, which offers a vast number of social, cultural and educational events in which residents can participate. Students receive a board credit to be used for the purchase of food. 

STAFF 

Students receive support from the Study Abroad Office at Baruch College. Dickinson faculty and administrators make trips to New York to facilitate workshops and networking opportunities for students. The on-campus coordinator is Dean and Director of Internships, Externships and Fellowships & College Dean Amity Fox.
