Farmer School of Business

The Farmer School of Business at Miami University consistently ranks among the top public business schools in the nation. Known for their “student first” focus, and innovative teaching methods, Farmer’s hallmarks are small class sizes, experiential learning programs, and high job placement rates. Farmer views international study as an integral curriculum component, and more than sixty percent of their students study abroad. These experiences translate into graduates who enter the professional workplace with business knowledge, leadership skills, and maturity frequently compared to typical MBA graduates.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

We are generally in small class sizes where we can really get to know our professors (never TA's). These professors have open office hours, where they genuinely want us to come and get to know them on a deeper level so that they can be of help to us. I have gone to these and gotten to know quite a few of my favorite teachers, who because of this will go the extra mile, telling me of job opportunities, connections they have for me to contact, case competitions, etc all to see me better succeed. On top of this, in the classroom, we are not just learning from a book or from lectures, but our professors often bring in real clients with objectives for us to meet such as putting forth an advertising campaign and then presenting this to the company. This gives us hands on learning and a chance to get in front of companies and show off our work, which I've learned can bring internships and jobs.
