Learning Community: College of Business

Ohio University’s Learning Communities offer students who take a common set of courses together a chance to develop a deeper understanding course subject matter, build relationships, and engage in meaningful, creative dialog outside of the classroom. “Bobcat Business!” and “Pre-Sport Management” communities are tailored exclusively to the College of Business

Benefits

  • A first-year experience that offers unique out-of-class activities
  • Build new friendships and find supports amongst your peers.
  • Close interaction with CoB faculty. 
  • Arrive at Orientation with most of your fall semester schedule planned.

Learning Community Options

Bobcat Business!: Admission to Bobcat Business! will be limited to those students pursuing a bachelor’s degree whose math score on ACT is 19 or above, or SAT score is 460 or above, which will allow direct admission to the required course ECON 103. In the past, participants were guaranteed enrollment in the following four fall semester courses that meet College of Business or university requirements:

  • ECON 1030: Introduction to Microeconomics (required)
  • BA 1000: Introduction to The College of Business (required)
  • Tier II Course
  • UC 1900: Learning Community Seminar (non-business elective taught by Business faculty)

Courses are subject to change; however, they will still meet College of Business or university requirements.

Pre-Sport Management

Students who are admitted into the pre-sport management major are eligible for this LC.  In the past, participants were guaranteed enrollment in the following four fall semester courses that meet College of Business or university requirements:

  • PSY 1010: General Psychology (required)
  • SASM 2001: Introduction to Sport Industry (required)
  • Tier I or II Course
  • UC 190: Learning Community Seminar (non-business elective taught by Business faculty)

Courses are subject to change; however, they will still meet College of Business or university requirements.

Learning Community seats will be tentatively reserved to the first people who complete the application process. Business majors who do not get a seat in a Business LC are encouraged to consider general learning communities for which they meet the eligibility requirements. Enrollment for general learning communities occurs during Orientation.
