Two college from New York make it onto the country's top 10 undergraduate business programs (check out this link): New York University (NYU) and Cornell. Both are private universities with yearly tuition around $40,000-$45,000. Both are quite selective.

For NYU, out of the 42,242 applicants for the undergraduate class of 2015, around 30% were offered admission. For NYU, the middle 50% of SAT scores for the class of 2015 was 630–730 for critical reading, 650–750 for math, and 660–750 for writing. The middle 50% of ACT scores for the class of 2015 fell between 29 and 31. The average GPA corresponds with an A-range letter grade. Most admitted students were in the top 10% of their class. These stats are from here.

For Cornell, out of 36,392 applications for the class of 2015, 18% were offered admission. For Cornell, the median SAT I scores for admitted students was 710 for critical reading and 740 for math. These numbers are from here.

One thing to add about Cornell: Their business program is part of what they call the "Hotel school". It is a business program with a particular specialization in the hospitality industry. This can sometimes be confusing for applicants, but make no mistake: it is a very high quality business program.
