About the Program

From 2013 through 2020, the Ratner Distinguished Visiting Business Journalist Program brought an exceptional business journalist to Baruch College’s Department of Journalism and the Writing Professions each semester.

Created with a gift from Bruce Ratner and his Forest City Ratner Companies, the program enabled journalists to spend one week in residence with students and faculty, speaking in classes, mentoring students and meeting with the staff of Dollars & Sense, the department’s award-winning online magazine.

“I come from a family that has always cherished the written word and in particular the importance of a robust and free press,” said Bruce Ratner.

Forest City Ratner has developed major New York institutions including The New York Times Building and the Barclays Center.
