SUNY Oswego's School of Business Makes 'Best' List

School of Business excelling, according to Princeton Review

    The School of Business at SUNY Oswego appears on Princeton Review's 2014 list of the nation's most outstanding MBA-granting business schools, the 10th consecutive year the school has achieved the designation.

    The private education services company features SUNY Oswego in its new book “The Best 295 Business Schools.” The national listing is 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.

    "We recommend SUNY Oswego as one of the best institutions a student could attend to earn a business school degree," wrote Robert Franek, Princeton Review's senior vice president and publisher. "We chose the schools we profile in this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and our reviews of institutional data we collect from schools.”

    SUNY Oswego's school, 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.

    Its profile in the new book includes survey comments about the school from students, such as "the very small classes promote learning and student-professor interaction" and "promotes a lot of hands-on work and team activities to form a strong work ethic among students."

    'Create a bond'

    Irene Scruton, director of MBA programs, said the school is proud of having achieved Princeton Review's top-schools rating for the past decade in a highly competitive market.

    "It's a testament to our high-quality, dedicated faculty delivering content that keeps pace with the demands of today's global employers," Scruton said.

    Among the school's customizable master of business administration 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.

    "We help each other out in our classes," one surveyed student said. "I think the students in the graduate program really create a bond with one another."

    Princeton Review scores colleges based on academic experience, admissions selectivity, career, student interest in professors' presentations and professors' accessibility.

    Oswego's profile in the new book makes particular note of the school's cost-effectiveness, saying students "can expect excellent value for their money."
