Oswego’s Business School Repeats As ‘Best’

Submitted article

The Princeton Review has named SUNY Oswego’s School of Business one of the “Best 296 Business Schools” in the latest edition of its graduate school guidebook of that title, released in October.

The Princeton Review is known for its college rankings based on surveys of students attending the schools. Its profile of Oswego is substantially the same as in its first edition four years ago, which included just 143 business schools.

It quotes one student proclaiming that Oswego’s “professors are excellent and the classes are fun and challenging” and another adding, “Very small classes promote learning and student-professor interaction.”

Among the criteria for inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 296 Business Schools” are AACSB International accreditation and graduate degree programs in business.

Oswego’s School of Business offers a broad undergraduate program with majors in accounting, business administration, finance, human resource management, management accounting, operations management and information systems, and marketing.

Its graduate program consists of the master’s in business administration degree. Oswego also offers two five-year combined bachelor’s/MBA programs: one that yields a bachelor’s degree in accounting plus the MBA and another leading to a bachelor’s in psychology plus the MBA.

Oswego’s MBA is intended to advance the careers of people in management positions or to provide foundation and in-depth preparation for students aspiring to move into such positions. Classes are offered on campus, online and at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center on Clinton Square in downtown Syracuse.

According to the Princeton Review, Oswego has 66 MBA students, 35 percent of them part time. The average MBA student at Oswego has five years work experience and begins graduate work at age 26. Among faculty, 88 percent are male, and 35 percent are members of racial or ethnic minorities.
