Oswego again in guide to best business schools

The Princeton Review has named SUNY Oswego’s School of Business one of the “Best 290 Business Schools” in the latest edition of 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 three years ago, which included just 143 business schools. It quotes a student proclaiming that “the professors are excellent and the classes are fun and challenging.”

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, only the three centers—Buffalo, Albany and Binghamton—are on the best list with Oswego.

Among the criteria for inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 290 Business Schools” are AASCB International accreditation and graduate degree programs in business.

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

According to the Princeton Review, Oswego has 76 MBA students, 40 percent of them part time. Seventy percent of students are male; 7 percent are members of racial or ethnic minorities; and 24 percent are international students. The average MBA student at Oswego has five years work experience and begins graduate work at age 26.

Among faculty, 83 percent are male, and 33 percent are members of racial or ethnic minorities.
