Applaud this diverse and vibrant community

The University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business and its supporters culminate each year by recognizing the accomplishments of the Business Fellows community during The Toast—an annual celebration. Featuring a dinner, live music, awards presentation, keynote address, alumni induction, and (of course) a toast, it is an incredible opportunity to engage with outstanding aspiring minority business professionals. Comprised of more than 120 African American, Hispanic/Latino and Native American students, the Business Fellows program offers a vibrant community that provides access to a network of resources in order to highlight opportunities and ensure success at Lindner and beyond.
