Are You Ready for Next?

The world is changing. Never have we felt that reality more than now. But change also means opportunity. During these unprecedented times, new possibilities await for those who remain curious, driven, and ready to learn. Whether you’re looking to sharpen your skills or start something new, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati offers a variety of programs to better position you for the challenges ahead. 


Any student with a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, regardless of field of study, is eligible to apply for admission to a Lindner graduate program. Applicants should have at least a B grade average (3.0 GPA or equivalent) in relevant undergraduate coursework, or otherwise show evidence of promise satisfactory to the admitting department. Applications are reviewed in a holistic manner, carefully considering your entire application portfolio. Before admission to UC is complete, all international students must fulfill US Immigration and Naturalization Service requirements and register with the UC Office of International Student Services.

Application deadlines represent the day that applications must be submitted. All required application items are due within two weeks of the submission deadline. Applications may be considered after the final program deadline pending space availability.
