OSWEGO — The Princeton Review has named the School of Business at SUNY Oswego among the nation’s most outstanding MBA-granting business schools for the 12th consecutive year.
The private education services company features SUNY Oswego in its new book “The Best 295 Business Schools — 2016 Edition.”
The national listing is an alphabetical and not a hierarchical ranking, putting Oswego’s School of Business in the company of those at the SUNY system’s university centers at Albany, Binghamton and Buffalo, plus Ivy League universities and other top academic institutions around the country.
“Students who enroll in the School of Business at SUNY Oswego can expect several things: excellent value for their money, intimate classes, knowledgeable professors, state-of-the-art facilities, and an excellent hockey team,” the Princeton Review wrote in a school profile.
Criteria for inclusion on the Princeton Review list include admissions selectivity and scoring of student survey responses about academic experience, campus culture, excellence and accessibility of faculty, and career placement efforts and successes. Over the past three years, the company surveyed 22,000 students attending the 295 business schools
The profile notes Oswego’s strong and active alumni, who regularly participate in such programs as Alumni-in-Residence. Alumni, among many others in prominent positions regionally, nationally and globally, include Robert Moritz, chairman and senior partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers; Fred Festa, chairman and CEO of WR Grace; and Donna Goldsmith, senior vice president for Tough Mudder consumer products/partnership marketing and formerly chief operations officer for World Wrestling Entertainment.
Under the leadership of Dean Richard Skolnik, Oswego’s master of business administration enrollment has grown from 67 students to 209 in the dozen years the Princeton Review has published its list. Among the school’s customizable MBA programs are health services administration, management, public accounting and a variety of five-year options that combine an MBA with such undergraduate disciplines as broadcasting, psychology and public accounting.
MBA delivery options include classroom-based in Oswego and/or at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center in Syracuse, blended classroom-online programs and the well-regarded all-online MBA.
SUNY Oswego’s School of Business, accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, offers undergraduate degrees in accounting, business administration, finance, human resource management, marketing, operations management and information systems, and risk management and insurance.
