Business Profile

Whether you dream of becoming a Fulbright Scholar, a US senator, or an Academy Award winner, ONU will prepare you to launch your future from a strong foundation. With top-ranked programs and opportunities outside the classroom, any path you choose at ONU will be grounded in concrete applications for the future. But the best part is that you never really have to choose. Our campus is an open frontier where engineers can be artists and artists can be entrepreneurs. At ONU we embrace the overlap in every field.

In the Dicke College of Business Administration at Ohio Northern University, we have a 97% job and graduate school placement rate. Our long-standing success is partly because we have excellent professors, partly because we have ambitious students, and partly because we’ve always been rooted in the future. Here you can get moving toward a career long before you graduate—and our alumni successes prove it.

The Dicke College of Business Administration
The Dicke College of Business Administration creates tomorrow’s leaders who are ethical, entrepreneurial, and engaged. The College is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. This is the highest and most sought-after accreditation for business programs in higher education. The College offers five majors and minors, and Accounting majors can add a fifth year and earn a Master of Science in Accounting.

You bring the passion; we’ll bring everything else
Acceptance into the Dicke College of Business Administration is an invitation to craft a lifetime of success. Here
you are not just a student: You are a future partner. An entrepreneur with an idea that could revolutionize an industry. A well of untapped potential ready to go forward and change the world.

Learning in the classroom is valuable, but true preparation and adaptability come from experience in the field. This is not a stuffy environment where everything is dictated from a textbook. You’ll be able to dive into programs like Polar Innovation Exchange, which focuses on creative innovations and entrepreneurial spirit by challenging you to present a new business idea to a panel of judges. Or take part in the Student Investment Group, which manages real assets of more than $175,000.

Internships are a requirement here, and we partner with businesses to create opportunities for you to gain experience in a field that interests you. Your college career culminates in the Senior Capstone Project—a passion project led by faculty that distills everything you’ve learned into one final exercise.
