Baruch College has a program in its Division of Continuing and Professional Studies (CAPS) for anyone looking to expand their skillset or fulfill a personal goal. Courses range from accounting to yoga, with many costing as little as $150. One of the largest CUNY colleges, Baruch is always evolving, determined to bring relevant education to meet ever-changing interests and career trends.

Ann Clarkson, assistant dean of CAPS, stressed Baruch's effort to help individuals overcome a "skill gap," nurturing what she calls "a belief in lifelong learning." Lifelong learning is the idea that one never stops learning and that there is always room to grow. Clarkson said that there aren't any specific subjects regularly pursued by those who register in CAPS programs, but that many of its students come from a business background.

Over 100 years old, Baruch's goal is to provide graduate programs focusing on professional preparation that enable students to become innovators in their fields. Some of the continuing education courses they offer include project management, certificate programs and real estate licensing. Advisement staff are also on hand to help with students' goals.
