Oswego's Business School named among best

imageThe Princeton Review has named SUNY Oswego’s School of Business one of the “Best 143 Business Schools” in its new graduate school guidebook, released Sept. 21.

“Students who enroll in the School of Business at SUNY Oswego can expect several things: excellent value for their money, intimate classes, knowledgeable professors, state-of-the-art facilities, and an excellent hockey team,” the guide’s profile of Oswego begins.

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 best 143 schools. In the State University of New York, only the University of Buffalo and Oswego are included in this top category.

“This listing is further confirmation of the high quality of our business programs,” said SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley, who noted that Oswego’s School of Business is internationally accredited by AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Among the criteria for inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 143 Business Schools” are AASCB International accreditation and graduate degree programs in business.

“This book helps us spread the word that Oswego’s business students receive exceptional preparation for careers in the competitive world of business,” said Dr. Lanny Karns, dean of Oswego’s School of Business.

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. The MBA program enrolls 90 graduate students, many of them professionals pursuing part-time study.

The Princeton Review is known for its annual “Best Colleges” guidebook rankings based on surveys of students who rate and report on their college campus experiences. Among the comments from Oswego students who are quoted in the “Best 143 Business Schools” are:

- “In most areas, the school of business is at the top of its class. The classes are challenging and worthwhile. Most professors are really good at their areas. They are also widely available to help students both inside and out of class.”

- “Very small classes promote learning and student-professor interaction.”

- “The professors are excellent, and the classes are fun and challenging.”

- “The course load is challenging, requiring solid communication and organization skills. Many professors are conducting research on global trade, accounting, and management science. My academic experience has been very positive. I would suggest Oswego to all prospective business students (undergraduate or graduate).”

- “What’s excellent about living on campus here is that there is every resource that you could possibly need available on-campus. There are new buildings and renovations, from a new student center [under construction] to the newly renovated freshman residence hall and new business center with technology classrooms.”
