To inform potential students and help our current students succeed during their time at ONU by preparing them for exciting career opportunities, our website provides valuable information on our exciting array of academic programs and student services.

The mission of the College of Business Administration is to “develop business leaders who are ethical, entrepreneurial and professional.” The college is among only 28 percent of business programs throughout the world that are accredited through the AACSB. I encourage you to visit the AACSB website to learn more about the rigorous standards used to ensure that we are continuously monitoring and improving our business curricula.

The College of Business Administration is especially proud to have thousands of alumni in leadership roles at companies and public agencies such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Mercy Health, Cooper Tires and Vanguard. Our alumni also are highly successful entrepreneurs and civic leaders. In addition to providing guidance to the college through our Advisory Board, many of our alumni provide exciting internship and cooperative education opportunities to our students.

Like the world around us, the College of Business Administration is constantly on the move. I encourage you to check back often to see the changes taking place.

Thank you for visiting our website. I encourage you to visit us in person and explore our state-of-the-art, 35,000-square-foot James F. Dicke Hall. And please, feel free to contact us if you would like more information.
