OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego’s School of Business made the Princeton Review’s list of the nation’s outstanding MBA-granting schools for the ninth consecutive year, with the publication citing a high level of student satisfaction, strong menu of academic offerings and flexible course delivery options.

SUNY Oswego makes 2013 'Best Business Schools' listThe educational services company recently released its book, “The Best 296 Business Schools: 2013 Edition,” including Oswego’s School of Business with a two-page profile detailing its rating criteria and student comments.

“We are proud to be included in the Princeton Review’s ‘Best Business Schools,’ as we have been since its inception,” said the school’s dean, Richard Skolnik.

Students surveyed noted “the professors are excellent and the classes are fun and challenging,” the school “provides a lot of hands-on work and team activities to form a strong work ethic” and their student peers are “very intelligent” and “reliable and helpful.”

The surveys found other strengths that included small and interactive classes, many hands-on learning opportunities, state-of-the-art facilities, vibrant campus life, solid preparation in accounting and management and scenic Lake Ontario setting. Faculty rated high for interest in helping students, knowledge and accessibility.

“We selected the schools we profile in this book — 280 of which are in the USA and 16 are international — based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from the school,” said Robert Franek, senior vice president and publisher. “We also solicit and greatly respect the opinions of students attending these schools who rate and report on their experiences at them on our 80-question survey for the book.”

SUNY Oswego’s School of Business, certified by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, recently began offering new coursework leading to a concentration in health services administration, including health care systems, managerial epidemiology and issues in health law, among others.
