SUNY Oswego business school repeats as 'Best'

The Princeton Review has named SUNY Oswego’s School of Business one of the “Best 282 Business Schools” in its graduate school guidebook of that title, released earlier this month.

The Princeton Review is known for its college rankings based on surveys of students attending the schools. Its profile of Oswego is substantially the same as in its first edition two years ago, which included just 143 business schools. Oswego students cite “excellent value for their money, intimate classes, knowledgeable professors, state-of-the-art facilities, and an excellent hockey team.”

In Central New York, only Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management and Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management are included along with Oswego in the book’s best business schools. In the State University of New York, Brockport this year joined the University of Buffalo and Oswego, Albany and Binghamton on the best list.

Among the criteria for inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 282 Business Schools” are AASCB International accreditation and graduate degree programs in business.

According to Robert Franek, Princeton Review vice president for publishing, “We chose schools for this book based on our high regard for their academic programs and offerings, institutional data we collect from the schools, and the candid opinions of students attending them who rate and report on their campus experiences at the schools. We are pleased to recommend Oswego to readers of our book and users of our website as one of the best institutions they could attend to earn an MBA.”

Oswego’s School of Business offers a broad undergraduate program with majors in accounting, business administration, finance, human resource management, management accounting, management science and marketing.
