The Financiers Without Borders at Baruch is a non-profit organization, dedicated to giving students volunteering opportunities in small businesses and other organizations around the world. Our projects benefits both students and companies alike, by on one hand providing students chances to put their studies to a practical use, and on the other hand supporting small businesses in need of help in regards to their strategic planning, marketing, and expansion.

This project integrates business consultation and community service.
