Student Testimonials
Emily S, Recent MBA Graduate
“I’m really happy with my choice to pursue my MBA at UC. I was attracted to the online MBA because of the high regional and national rankings it has received and because of the flexibility that online courses provide. I also wanted to be able to work my full-time job while earning my degree. My main motivation for completing an MBA was to facilitate a career change. The Lindner College of Business is unique in that it is the only UC college with a dedicated Career Services Center of its own, which was an excellent resource for me as a student and continues to be as an alumnus. ”

“As someone currently enrolled in UC's Lindner College of Business online MBA program, I can attest to the value of the program. The pace can be intense at times, but the structure allows for logical progression. I was, honestly, surprised that I found the online learning experience preferable both for convenience and for comprehension. Being able to replay lectures, have online notes, ability to ask questions of instructors easily and actually collaborate with classmates in a meaningful way were real plusses. UC knows how to leverage technology. The curriculum is rich and useful; the professors are first-rate. ”

Jessica S, Current Online MBA Student
“Working full-time in healthcare operations, being married with three children and pursuing my MBA is something that takes effort and sacrifice. Distance learning (taking online classes) presents its own challenges. You must have good time management skills and know when to prioritize school. There’s not always a set time to show up to class, so you have to tap into that discipline a different way. On the other hand, being in an online program is incredibly liberating. You make your own schedule and the technology is always available and easy to use. My professors give adequate time and methods for virtual check-ins, such as WebEx, and regularly make themselves available to meet in person. They genuinely want their students to succeed.”
