Lindner College of Business

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. That’s why the University of Cincinnati Lindner College of Business focuses on helping its students turn their passions into careers. It combines classroom learning with hands-on experiences because doing is the best way for students to learn what they are (and aren’t) passionate about. During freshman year, students tackle real-world projects for leading organizations such as Procter & Gamble, the Cincinnati Reds and the United Way before joining UC’s nationally-ranked co-op program and interning at companies such as Macy's, IBM, Deloitte and NASA.

What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

UC has a large alumni group, and many alumni members give back to UC, and have strong desires to hire UC recruits for jobs in their companies. I am in the Entrepreneurship program which is extremely unique to the College of Business. The networking and contacts that I have gained in the college is very valuable to me.
