The University of Cincinnati’s Lindner College of Business is a top-notch midwestern school located in a city known for its major league sports, top-notch cuisine, and a thriving arts scene along the Ohio river. The Lindner MBA offers plenty of opportunity to engage with the Cincinnati business community and work to find solutions to real-world problems for some of the world’s leading companies in the area such as Procter & Gamble, Kroger, and Macy’s, which are within three miles of campus.

The Lindner MBA can be completed in as little as one year or as many as 16 months. Class sizes are limited to a small number of students so Lindner MBAs can receive beneficial personalized attention.

The program is uniquely designed to fit each student’s needs and consists of 48 credit hours, 10 of which are of foundation classes, 26 credits of which are core classes, and 12 credit hours of electives. The B-School offers over 20 specializations to choose from, so there are courses for every career interest. These specializations include data analytics, entrepreneurship and health care administration. Lindner MBAs often study abroad, and it’s required for full-time MBAs.

“It has been incredible here. You really get to know every single person. The class sizes are around 40 students, and that’s phenomenal. You work with everyone in different groups and everyone has their own skills. Cincinnati is a small city but it has tremendous opportunity,” says MBA Ashok Suresh in a YouTube video.
