I am a sophomore at Baruch College majoring in Applied Math. And I am interested in a career and a summer analyst internship next year in credit risk at a BB IB.

I heard that Baruch is recruited heavily for middle or back office. Front office not so much. Since risk is middle office I want to know if the BB IB recruit from Baruch for credit risk/ risk management?

Yes they do. There are two BB positions in risk up right now according to our intern. (*edit saw it, legit) In case you are wondering there are also about 6 commercial banks, 3 IB's and 2 top AM firms listing similar positions.

What kind of question is this? You go to Baruch College, are you being recruited for credit risk/risk management at a BB IB?

It may be a stretch, but I would say that it's likely that Baruch's career management has a better idea of the firms that recruit Baruch students than an anonymous forum.

MO and BO, mostly? False, just take a look on LinkedIn and there's loads of students/graduates in FO. I personally know a handful that are doing IB @ BBs. Specifically, I know two credit risk associates who started off as analysts at BOA.

Your first and last sentences are contradictory. Keep fighting the good fight.
