[QUOTE=domer;107660]Schuyler also has the best Master’s degree program run by Jeff Weiss, who is excellent! And Weiss does a good job at keeping the grad students pretty well insulated from the likes of Hanft! While this may not seem to matter to undergrads it, in fact, has a profound impact on the school. The grad program attracts people from some of the best Wall Street firms and places them in the same license classes as the undergrads. This, in effect, gives students interested in high salary finance jobs in-house mentoring and access to high level contacts outside the industry.[/QUOTE]
You make some good points but this one in particular I would have to contest. I’m sure SUNY Maritime’s master’s program is very good but I would be hesitant to call it “the best”. While I cannot comment on any statistics what I do know is that Maine’s master’s program (International Business and Logistics) has been very competitive over the last decade across an array of industries and as a result has raked in loads of cash both for the graduates of the program and for the school itself. The proximity to Wall Street, and Manhattan in general, is an obvious advantage for SUNY but I would argue that SUNY’s master’s program and Maine’s master’s program are very close to on par.
