Oswego’s top ranked online MBA earns spot in Open SUNY

This spring semester SUNY Oswego’s Master in Business Administration and Master in Health Services Administration, both offered fully online, became the first two graduate degrees offered through Open SUNY, a new SUNY-wide collaboration to enable online learning opportunities for students nationally and internationally.

Oswego’s online MBA is one of the top 15 online graduate business programs in the nation, according to U.S. News, making it the number one program in the state.

The School of Business, accredited by AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International), prides itself on faculty and student support.

“Open SUNY recognizes that our online MBA is highly ranked because our students receive a high level of customized, personal support,” said Irene Scruton, MBA director. “Students will also benefit in having faculty with the top technical tools to enhance the online experience.”

SUNY Oswego’s online MBA and MBA HSA joined six other degree programs in the spring 2014 launch and were chosen based on student interest, accreditation and workforce demand throughout New York.

The MBA HSA launched in fall 2013 to prepare students to meet the growing demand for leaders that can help to improve the quality, access and cost of health care.

“Since the MBA HSA program is new to SUNY Oswego, Open SUNY will help us to connect with students interested in health care administration both locally and nationally,” said Sarah Bonzo, MBA HSA coordinator.

Open SUNY is redefining the access to a college degree, giving more people the opportunity to earn a degree at their convenience.

As part of the Open SUNY initiative, there are built-in supports for students and faculty, including 24/7 assistance for students who need technical support, tutoring, financial planning, or academic advisement.

As for SUNY Oswego, the MBA program offers prospective students online information sessions with Scruton and Bonzo.

The two discuss Open SUNY opportunities and Oswego’s MBA options, and answer students’ questions in real-time.
