Whitman School of Management  is among the top five undergraduate business schools in New York state, according to College Choice, an independent online publication dedicated to helping students and their families find the right college.” Whitman is #4 on the list, which is based on several sourcecollege-choice-2016-badges, including placement data and publicly-available sources, such as U.S. News & World Report and payscale.com. The full list is online.

“We are pleased with this recognition of our dedication to preparing students for successful business careers,” said S.P. Raj, interim dean of the Whitman School. “This ranking is a testament to our continued emphasis not only on a rigorous curriculum, which educates our students in the skills needed to be successful, but also our commitment to experiential learning and development of skills outside the classroom.”

The Whitman School’s undergraduate program offers eight majors, as well as dual programs with Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, College of Law and its iSchool. Students begin business classes in their first year, taking 12 classes taught by accomplished research faculty and seasoned practitioners, by the end of their second year.

Students also gain important “soft skills,” such as leadership and communication through the Goodman IMPRESS program, which uses a gamification and four-“house” competitive model, allowing students to earn points while building skills for career success. There are myriad other opportunities for students to experience what they’re learning in the classroom, including student clubs, the Orange Value Fund, Ballentine Investment Institute and entrepreneurial resources, including the Couri Hatchery business incubator.

Whitman’s Career Center offers students coaching and career preparation resources to allow them to reach their aspirations, including assistance finding internships and support for their job search activities and personal career development.
