OUR PROGRAMS

The University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business has repeatedly been named one of the top business schools in the United States by sources such as U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg Businessweek and The Princeton Review. Just as importantly, we have been AACSB accredited (an honor earned by only 15% of the world’s business schools) since 1919. We offer students a nationally-ranked MBA program as well as eight specialized master’s programs, six of which have been ranked among the Top 10 programs in the United States. Our MBA program was recently ranked #1 in the United States based on our academic quality, job placement success and tuition affordability.

Our programs combine transformative classroom learning with real-world learning experiences. Our students have countless opportunities to participate in regional, national and global case competitions, gain hands-on experience while working on projects for global clients such as Procter & Gamble, Kellogg’s and Citi, and study abroad in North America, South America, Europe and Asia.

Because specialization offers the opportunity for you to truly master a new discipline and significantly propel your career and earning power, we offer students the option to specialize their degrees with one of more than 20 graduate certificates ranging from functional areas such as marketing, finance and operations to cross-disciplinary topics such as data analytics, innovation and entrepreneurship.
