Applying Your Experiences

The Ohio University College of Business's philosophy is one of application and practice. Like law or medicine, you need to put into practice what you learn in the classroom. Why? Because that's how students learn best.


The bachelor and master of business administration are accredited by AACSB International. This accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools, worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. AACSB International accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education. Of the thousands of business programs, only 319 are accredited at both the bachelor and master level.

The Business Cluster

“The Business Cluster is one of the reasons that the OHIO College of Business is one of the best business schools, in my opinion. The Cluster taught me how to prioritize when things need to get done. It taught me to look at things unconventionally and think critically.”
