Ranked at #40 nationally, SUNY Oswego continues as the top-ranked public college in New York and one of only two public schools to crack the list's top 100 online graduate business programs. Oswego was ranked third in the state overall.
Oswego's online MBA program and the college's various MBA degree options are all accredited by the AACSB (Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business), Irene Scruton, Oswego's MBA director, said.
"We value the U.S. News ranking and its attention to a host of criteria in five categories: student engagement, student services and technology, administrative criteria, faculty credentials and peer review," Scruton said.
“The U.S. News ranking is an affirmation of the quality of the SUNY Oswego online MBA program,” said Richard Skolnik, dean of Oswego’s School of Business.
“The online MBA program has a rich mix of students in a variety of occupations,” Skolnik noted. “The online format allows individuals to pursue an MBA in a setting whose time and location is not fixed. This provides access to a quality AACSB-accredited program to those who have family and career commitments that preclude a residential MBA program. The online program has the same mix of faculty as the classroom-based program and the rigorous courses require a significant amount of time and attention from students and faculty.”
Many online MBA students are working professionals looking to advance their careers, contributing to the program more than doubling in enrollment in a five-year span. SUNY Oswego's online MBA program runs year-round, including offerings in winter and summer, enabling accelerated degree completion.
"Such high and consistent national rankings firmly recognize the directions SUNY Oswego is exploring and commitments the college is making as we continue on a path of providing the best possible education for our students and producing the greatest good for our region and the world," said college President Deborah F. Stanley.
