Oswego's business school repeats as 'Best'

image of Rich HallThe Princeton Review has named Oswego’s School of Business one of the “Best 237 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 last year, which included 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, Albany and Binghamton this year joined the University of Buffalo and Oswego on the best list.

Among the criteria for inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 237 Business Schools” are AASCB International accreditation and graduate degree programs in business.

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

According to the Princeton Review, Oswego has 70 MBA students with a male:female ratio of 62:38; 12.5 percent are members of racial or ethnic minorities; and 20 percent are international students. The average MBA student at Oswego has five years work experience and begins graduate work at age 26.
