Ohio University’s full-time MBA program brings students from diverse backgrounds together for a comprehensive business education in one year.
Ohio University’s MBA program gives students a platform to discover potential and develop critical business knowledge and skills through a rigorous 12-month curriculum. It combines core business classes with professional development seminars, company tours, and an international immersion experience.
Working in small teams, students tackle real-world business issues in areas like organizational behavior, strategic marketing and supply chain management, and business analytics. Students enhance their leadership skills and become more effective working in a team environment.
"Students in the full-time MBA program develop a balance of critical thinking skills and practical business knowledge, and learn leadership skills needed for their entire career,” said Ginny Valentin, administrative director, graduate and executive education. “Our program is designed to help students enhance their core business competencies and develop the confidence to thrive as strategic and resourceful professionals.”
Graduates from the MBA program are hired at some of America’s best companies, benefitting from a comprehensive alumni network.
“I chose to get my MBA because I believe that classroom knowledge, when paired with hard work, will propel me to where I want to be professionally,” said Evan Simmons, ‘16. “The real world application of the content we're learning is already evident.”
The OHIO MBA is one of fewer than five percent of business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the gold standard for business education.
"I wanted a program that was accredited because these are considered the best business schools in the world with better faculty, better programs, and students who receive better salaries upon graduation," said Simmons. "OHIO's MBA passed the rigorous review process to be one of these elite schools and the tuition was significantly less than some other schools I considered."
