Baruch being the most diverse school in the most diverse city in the world really bring a lot of different views and perspectives on issues and problem solving. Students are brought together by one common goal and that is their desire to succeed financially which starts for many at not owing debt. I remember freshmen and sophomore year my BHAG was to graduate and have a six figure corporate job. Now so close to graduation I begin to think about core ideologies and purpose. I believe that anyone can make a 6 figure salary however sacrifices will have to be made. An individual observing one’s core values reveal who they are and guides in the direction of where they want to go. After all sacrifices are suppose to be made when it is worth the trade-off. It is much healthier working for a purpose and taking the steps toward an envisioned future.
The students here at Baruch are thirsty and strive for a success. Everybody wants to graduate and group projects have been great in preparing us for the next step in our career. Group projects are about learning to work as a team and the diversity at Baruch make it so that students gain much more experience and become open to newer and innovative ideas and problem solving. It can be fun and other times there are many obstacles to overcome but it is all useful experience. You never know what kind of managers and coworkers you may be stuck with. Envisioned future for students after graduation is as diverse as the student body. Everyone has a different plan but our path will be guided by our value of value itself. Never giving up too much for what we want.
