BARUCH COLLEGE–An economic impact study contended that CUNY’s Queens College added $1.8 billion to the New York City metropolitan area economy.

The study was conducted by Emsi, an independent labor market analytics firm and leading provider of economic impact studies to international educational institutions. It outlined an economic impact analysis and investment analysis of the 2017-2018 fiscal year. 

For every dollar spent by taxpayers, there is a $5 return, according to the Flushing Post.
