Entrepreneur magazine reports Oswego in top 15 business schools for accounting

Rich HallSUNY Oswego is one of 15 business schools named to the Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools” in the accounting category. The list appears in the April issue of Entrepreneur magazine.

Honors lists in six categories salute business schools that received the highest evaluations from their MBA students for career preparation.

The Princeton Review, an education services company that publishes “The Best 296 Business Schools: 2009 Edition” with Random House, created the lists after interviewing 19,000 graduate students at business schools nationwide.

Cited in the accounting category along with Oswego are such well-known institutions as the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business, Boston College’s Carroll School of Management, and the Simon Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Rochester.

“We’re obviously proud of this latest honor for our School of Business,” said Dr. Richard Skolnik, dean of the school. “It’s a testament to our faculty’s dedication to students and concern for their lifelong success.”

The honored business schools appear in alphabetical order on the lists, and are not ranked 1 to 15. In addition to appearing in the magazine, the lists are posted at www.entrepreneur.com/topcolleges and www.princetonreview.com/studentOpinionHonors.aspx.

SUNY Oswego’s School of Business has a distinctive five-year combined program in which students earn a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA, an award-winning chapter of the national accounting honor society Beta Alpha Psi, and a listing in every edition of the Princeton Review’s guide to best business schools since the annual series began.

Based in the renovated Rich Hall (pictured), Oswego’s School of Business offers a broad undergraduate program with majors in business administration, finance, human resource management, operations management and information systems, and marketing, besides management accounting and public accounting.

Its graduate program consists of the master’s in business administration degree and two five-year combined bachelor’s/MBA programs: the one in accounting and another leading to a bachelor’s in psychology plus the MBA.

Oswego’s MBA is intended to advance the careers of people in management positions or to provide foundation and in-depth preparation for students aspiring to move into such positions. Classes are offered on campus, online and at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center on Clinton Square in downtown Syracuse.
