MBA Full-Time


What Is The Full-Time Lindner MBA Experience Like?

The full time Lindner MBA is designed to be a life changing and career launching experience. Our goal is to help you change the way you learn, change the way you think and to change the way you live. Our program is accelerated and consists of 35-48 credit hours spread over the course of two or three semesters. This pace means you can be back in the workforce in as few as 9 months. You can also choose extend the program by one term by adding a summer internship or by another year by adding a specialized master’s degree to your program. Regardless of how you navigate the program, Lindner is there to support you. 100% of full-time students receive some level of scholarship funding. Couple that with our competitive tuition rates and you'll see the Lindner MBA has a top tier ROI!

The program starts in the fall term and is a cohort model, meaning your schedule is very structured and core classes are taken as one group. We are small by design with a fall class size that is approximately fifty students. Keeping our program small means we can take a personal approach to your educational goals. The MBA Academic Director and faculty in the program are highly accessible and you will have the opportunity to get to know them on a deeper level allowing for more meaningful academic relationships and personal mentoring. It also allows us to assign you a career coach who will work with you closely to make sure you are ready to tackle your career search and are equipped to be successful.

At the completion of your program it is our expectation that you will have built close knit, lifelong relationships with your fellow Lindner MBA alumni and will be prepared to take your career to the next level.


The Lindner MBA Capstone Experience for Full Time Students

As a Lindner full-time MBA, you’ll spend an entire semester working with a team on a real-world capstone project engaging with the Cincinnati business community. You'll work to find solutions to problems for some of the world’s leading companies. It won’t take you long to realize the many benefits of a strong MBA program that’s located three miles from the global headquarters of Procter & Gamble, Kroger and Macy’s and in a city that is home to more Fortune 500 companies per capita than New York, Los Angeles, Chicago or Boston. No matter who your client is, the experience you gain will prepare you to exceed your employer’s expectations in the interview room, on the job and beyond.


Global Immersion

At Lindner, we believe that successful business leaders in the 21st century need to think globally, so we require full-time MBA students to take part in a global, immersive business experience . A cornerstone of the Lindner MBA program involves a team-based consulting project with groups of 4 to 5 students working together on a business challenge assigned by a leading company in that region. Global immersions have included studying Entrepreneurship in Dubai, Supply Chain Management in Chile, and Project Management in the Czech Republic
