Oswego’s School of Business appears on Princeton Review’s 2014 list of the nation’s most outstanding MBA-granting business schools for the 10th consecutive year. Oswego’s online MBA tied for 14th among online graduate business programs—the highest of any institution in the state, according to U.S. News’ 2014 “Best Online Degree Programs: Business (Graduate)” rankings, published Jan. 8.
Princeton Review features Oswego in its new book, The Best 295 Business Schools.
“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.”
The online MBA ranking affirms Oswego’s successful translation of campus-based instruction to serve students anywhere, said SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley.
“This ranking reflects our emphasis on providing real-world opportunities and outstanding teaching to ensure that Oswego students receive the best possible preparation to enter the business world,” she said. “The professors teaching our online students have excellent backgrounds, and our well-connected alumni working in the field help students with job placements, co-ops and other hands-on experiences.”
The U.S. News rankings of online MBA programs emphasize such factors as student engagement (in which Oswego ranked fifth overall), peer reputation, admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology.
Oswego’s School of Business, accredited by the International Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, was the only school in New York State to crack the list’s top 30 online graduate business programs.
Dr. Richard Skolnik, dean, said the quality of the online MBA “reflects the investment SUNY Oswego has made in online education.”
