Oswego’s School of Business achieves ‘Best for Vets’ ranking

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego’s School of Business recently earned a first-ever top 75 “Best for Vets” spot, ranking 37th on the list compiled by Military Times, an independent publisher of news and information for service members and their families.

“Best for Vets: Business Schools 2015” ranks schools for their commitment to providing opportunities for veterans. The ranking includes such graduate schools of business as those of Syracuse University Martin J. Whitman School of Management, Florida State College of Business, Texas A&M University Mays Business School, University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business and — the only other SUNY institution on the list — Empire State College School of Graduate Studies.

More than 150 graduate schools of business applied for the third annual Military Times ranking, which relied on a nearly 80-question analysis of graduate business schools, focusing on culture, curriculum, cost, financial aid, policies, admissions criteria and publicly available comparative data in ways that cater to military veterans and track student success and academic quality.

Eligible schools also had to have completed the 2015 Military Times “Best for Vets” college-wide survey, because the ranking methodology also relied in part on those responses.

In November, Military Times named SUNY Oswego to its top 100 “Best for Vets” college ranking for 2015.

Oswego came in at No. 69 among four-year colleges and universities on the list, joining only Plattsburgh in the SUNY system.

The business-school rankings are published online at www.militarytimes.com/best-for-vets and in issues of the Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times.
