Baruch & Ibanking

<p>Is Baruch a good school to get me into Ibanking? I know its considered a "mere community college", but during the most recent orientation I've met a number of kids with summer internships at GS, Bank of A. Wealth Mgmt (Meryll), Deloitte, and etc. However, Baruch doesnt really have a "target" school status, and an elite name.. Any alums care to share their experience?</p>

<p>Baruch is definitely not a target for front office - it is a target for back office. If you want IB, you will have to work hard - very high GPA, club involvement, know the technicals, try to land boutique internships and network. </p>

<p>Most people at Baruch who have internships and jobs with BB banks are working in back office and, recently, albeit to a lesser extent, WM - in Deloitte, it is generally audit, not MC. </p>

<p>It is possible to break into IB for sure, but definitely requires more leg work than coming from, say, Stern or Columbia</p>

<p>PM me if you have other questions</p>
