Taking Business Courses at Baruch

The following policy is set by the Dean of the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College:

The demand for many business courses frequently exceed the supply for these courses at the Zicklin School of Business every semester, as undergraduate enrollment in the Zicklin’s business programs has been steadily growing and the available seats for business courses are limited by our physical spaces and faculty resources. Our priority has been and will always be to ensure adequate choices of business courses for matriculated Zicklin business students in order to complete their degree requirement in a reasonable time frame. Therefore, it is necessary to limit the availability of some business courses to non-Zicklin business undergraduate students from other CUNY institutions and within Baruch College.

Non-Zicklin undergraduate students, including those from Baruch College, CUNY BA, and other CUNY institutions, if their Program of Study requires business courses (such as a business minor or business electives) and adequate pre-requisites are satisfied, are permitted to:

  • Take any number of the 1000 or 2000 level business courses subject to seat availability, and
  • Take a total of three (3) of the 3000 or 4000 level selected business courses from the list below.

In cases where a student wants to take a course that is not on the selected course list and the 3-course limit is not reached, if the course is not fully enrolled and the department gives permission, the student may register for the unlisted course.

CUNY BA students must provide the Zicklin Dean’s Office with a copy of an approved AOC form which shows the course they wish to register for. Permission will be granted by that office and entered into CUNYfirst to facilitate registration
