To ensure the safety of all students, faculty and staff, the university has instituted new guidelines. While safety guidelines are updated as the COVID pandemic evolves, the current guidelines require all students to be fully vaccinated to participate in our program. If you are a visitor wishing to come to campus, we request that you call the individual you wish to see directly to make arrangements. Everyone on campus is required to wear a mask at all times. Only those that are vaccinated will be allowed on campus. Your credentials will be reviewed upon arrival by college staff at each entrance.

International Business Program

The International Business Program (IBP) was designed to familiarize individuals with the processes, routines, and best practices of modern business. IBP is relevant for domestic and international students who are interested in entering or enhancing a career in Marketing or Management. Baruch College is nationally recognized for outstanding academics by The Princeton Review and is among the most ethnically diverse campuses in the nation. Many of our students have gone on to prestigious positions with top corporations in the U.S. and abroad. We develop and initiate new courses and programs in response to market changes and the needs of aspiring professionals. Please note: The IBP program has replaced the Contemporary American Business Practices Program (CABP).
