Student Recommendations
"Studying entrepreneurship at UC has been pivotal to my success in launching Piola. Learning how to identify, plan and act on an opportunity in a market in his courses has helped me to refine, adapt and grow my business."

Josh R., Piola

"The entrepreneurship faculty conveyed enthusiasm and real life application providing me with the confidence to effectively manage a multi-million dollar budget. My personal development and college experience was maximized through studying entrepreneurship."

Mike F., Hills Properties

"I had the opportunity to interact with some of the most influential and inspiring entrepreneurs Cincinnati has to offer, giving me the tools necessary to apply my entrepreneurial skillset across numerous industries and challenges. I now work for an entrepreneur that guest lectured in an entrepreneurship class at UC and have co-founded a nonprofit."

Gage W., Supply Dynamics

"The entrepreneurship program has taught me new venture planning, innovation, and strategic problem solving.  These skills allowed me to develop and implement a successful business model, which has allowed me to transform a mediocre restaurant into the most popular restaurant and lounge in Oxford.  Since implementing my new business concept one year ago, we have seen revenue increase by 80%."
