UR, RIT business schools make Businessweek list

The business schools of two local universities – and three others in Central and Western New York – have made the Bloomberg Businessweek list of the best business schools in the country.

The list of the top 85 programs offering full-time masters of business administration programs includes University of Rochester’s Simon Business School  (No. 33), and Rochester Institute of Technology’s Saunders College of Business (No. 79).

Raters considered interviews with thousands of students, alumni and employers, as well as job placement percentages and compensation.

Other schools in the region on the list are Cornell University’s SC Johnson College of Business (No. 13), State University of New York at Buffalo’s School of Management (No. 46) and Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management (No. 64).

Harvard University was ranked first for the third year in a row. President Donald J. Trump’s alma mater, Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, jumped four spots from 2016 to take second place.

RIT’s Saunders College appeared on the list for the first time.
