According to the dean of SUNY-Oswego’s School of Business, the X-factor that makes his institution’s online MBA program different from the rest is its student-centered approach.
Dean Richard Skolnik says the emphasis SUNY-Oswego places on students as customers is seen in the concierge model it uses to work with every student on a one-to-one basis, the instructional design methods used to assist faculty in developing top-notch, engaging coursework, and the best practices for online learning it adheres to just to make sure students receive the highest quality of online education there is.
TWO MBA OPTIONS: BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND HEALTH SERVICES
The SUNY-Oswego online MBA is an accredited, top-ranked program that is delivered fully online through Blackboard learning management system. The curriculum focuses on general management principles and consists of 36-57 credits depending on students’ previous academic experience in business.
Seven foundational courses are required totaling 21 credits. They’re all offered online by the school of business or students have the option to complete the courses at another institution that may be more convenient for them both location-wise and cost-wise.
Students typically take two and a half years to complete the online MBA program. Courses are 100% asynchronous, lasting 15 weeks in the fall or spring, and three, six, or 12 weeks in the summer.

“Group projects would be in our international course, for instance, where we ask students to research the business environment for a country then make recommendations on whether to invest or not invest,” Dean Skolnik says. “In marketing, they’ll often do community-based projects such as one where there was branding for a local town and the students worked together looking at ways to elevate the town’s profile.”
In speaking about group project work, the dean reflects on one online MBA student’s recent experience. “We spoke about group projects and collaboration with peers who are in different places in the world. The student was relaying working with a classmate who was in India and another in China and the need to coordinate across multiple time zones. What was morning for them was evening for another student on the other side of the world. What’s nice about this is it models what we see in the business environment as we collaborate with colleagues who are in different parts of the world.”
