Non-Business Students

Transition students join the Lindner College of Business from other colleges at the University of Cincinnati.

To explore a business degree, major or minor, non-business students should attend a prospective student information session. This semester, the Lindner College of Business is hosting virtual information sessions. While this session has a designated day and time, it takes place completely on the internet through Blackboard. You can participate from any location as long as you have an internet connection.

Virtual sessions are held on the following dates for Spring 2019 semester. Please select the date you are interested in attending to complete registration. Each session will be an hour in duration with a live chat. In order to provide individualized attention, each session is limited to eight students. Once a session has filled, the survey will show as closed. 

All sessions will open for registration on January 14th, 2019.
