Part of the University of Cincinnati business behemoth, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business MBA Program is “equally flexible as it is respected,” offering both a part-time (completed in as little as 18 months) and a full-time option (completed in as little as twelve months), with classes held at its Clifton Heights and Blue Ash campuses, as well as online. The “affordable” school will even waive foundational courses if a student has an undergraduate business degree. “I needed a program that could adapt to my unpredictable work schedule while still challenging me as well as being known beyond this region,” says a student.

The program focuses “heavily on project-team based work and less on outdated traditional classroom instruction/testing.” “[It] has challenged me to think out of the box and I have gained a great deal of respect for the school and its faculty in the past year,” says a student. Professors are “loaded with experience” and a “passion to teach” and “can relate that knowledge in class.” All classes are put online as podcasts, which “is great if you have to work late or are traveling,” and the school also uses programs like Aplia and Connect to supplement lectures.

The school administration is “always looking to grow and adapt to the changing economy. They’re focused on building for the future.” “At the end of the day you can find good people who will help you get what you need,” says one student. The school is “very accommodating” to working professionals’ schedules, and “encourages students to be creative and find creative ways to challenge ourselves and change our communities.” “As an MBA student at UC, I feel like I am an important part of the program. My ideas are heard; I am connected with my fellow students and faculty,” says a student. “I was very skeptical at first but now I’ve realized what a brilliant business school it really is, and how relevant the courses are,” says another.
