College of Business Learning Communities

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 College of Business (COB) faculty
  • Arrive at Bobcat Student 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 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 ECON 103 course. 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 COB 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 1900: Learning Community Seminar (non-business elective taught by COB faculty)

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


Seats in College of Business learning communities will be tentatively reserved to the first people who complete the application process. Business majors who do not get a seat in a COB learning community are encouraged to consider general learning communities for which they meet the eligibility requirements. Enrollment for general learning communities occurs during orientation.
