Your best choice for business education

The College of Business at Ohio University is invested in providing a dynamic learning environment, with dedicated faculty and staff who will help you prepare for a successful business career. 

Faculty focused on your success
One of the reasons we’ll be your best decision is our dedicated faculty. They will be your biggest advocates and cheerleaders—during your time as a student and beyond. They’re interested in your professional goals, can connect you with internships and career planning opportunities, and will introduce you to industry professionals and alumni in your field who want to hire our students. When you land that first job or get accepted to graduate school, our faculty will celebrate with you. They want to see students succeed and fulfill their dreams. 

Project-based learning
Students join “Copeland Associates,” a fictitious firm that provides clients with business analytics and consulting support, and act as Junior Associates, or "new hires.” Then, faculty take on the role of Senior Partners to guide associates through a series of progressively complex business problems, working to integrate and apply knowledge from each discipline. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking, effective communication, teamwork effectiveness, integrative learning, and professional accountability. 

It’s not just one experience—it’s all of them
Another reason the OHIO College of Business will be your best decision is all the opportunities that are available to you here. With 12 majors, five minors, and 12 certificates, our curriculum allows for personalized learning where you become immersed in several disciplines. 

We deliver relevant experiences that will help you make an impact here and once you start your career. You can travel to Greece to solve complex problems for clients through the Global Consulting Program, manage a $2.8 million portfolio of fixed income securities for the Ohio University Endowment Fund, and determine your career path through meaningful internships that bring you closer to your goals. These hands-on experiences will set you apart when you launch your career. 

Become a Business Bobcat!
Becoming a Business Bobcat isn’t just about your time here—it will shape who you are forever. You’ll be connected to the people you meet, places you explore, and experiences you have for the rest of your life.
