Can I get into buldge bracket investment banks like Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan right after graduation if I graduate from Baruch College with a finance degree?
Yes. Though you will need to be at the top of your graduating class with a strong resume. You would need that from Columbia as well.
Agree with the above. Baruch students also have many financial industry opportunities beyond bulge bracket banks. Don’t underestimate back office/operational jobs at these companies too.
