School of Business Classroom

The School of Business continues its trajectory as a leading school, moving to 113 in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report rankings of undergraduate business programs. The school occupied the 126 spot last year and had previously held at 129. To make this determination, U.S. News polled school deans and senior faculty at undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

School of Business Dean Donald Siegel said, “Our ranking places us in a tie with Binghamton and Rutgers and ahead of key rival institutions, such as Stony Brook, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Since 2008, we have risen 26 places in the U.S. News rankings. I am confident that we will continue to rise in the rankings, due to our outstanding placement, the new $64 Million School of Business building, the new undergraduate program in digital forensics (which will attract many out-of-state students, since it is the only four year degree program in this exciting new field in New York State and just the third in the country), and our aggressive hiring of tenure track faculty in all academic departments (five last year and seven this year).”

The School of Business is no stranger to awards, holding the U.S. News #1 ranking for MBA placement two years running, having placed 100 percent of its graduates, and with 100 percent placed this spring, is likely to be named again. The school is ranked as one of the top 100 MBA programs in the country, most recently holding the 86th and 87th positions. The recently constructed tech-savvy School of Business building was named the fourth most beautiful in the world.
