Pace will probably give you better faculty to student ratio and resources since it is a private school. Baruch, is a city university that's probably under pressure to cut budget due to NYC and NYS budget deficit.

Neither school enjoys a national brand, but Baruch's name shows up in national accounting program ranking for both undergrad and grad programs.

From my previous career at Big 4, I believe most Big 4 accounting firms recruited at Pace (if not all). Baruch is pretty much a feeder school for all Big 4. I think it's 2nd most important accounting program in NYC after NYU Stern (in terms of Big 4 recruiting). But unless your goal is to stay within NYC for school, you can probably find alternatives with better brand recognition.

thanks for the information. my goal is to work in NYC after grad school, so i would like to stay within NYC for school if possible, but i'm also looking at BC and Bentley.
