"This new state-of-the-art learning environment is the next step toward preeminence for the Lindner College of Business."

— Dean David Szymanski

Over the past three years, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business has received a myriad of national accolades. Lindner earned the highest MBA rankings jump in the nation in U.S. News & World Report, was named one of the best undergraduate business schools in the country by Bloomberg Businessweek and was ranked the number one best value MBA program in the United States.

Such national acclaim has led to multiple consecutive years of record-breaking numbers of applications and enrollments at both the graduate and undergraduate level. Accordingly, the Lindner College of Business has significantly outgrown its current building capacity and 30% of our classes now take place outside of Lindner Hall.

In June 2016, the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees approved the planning of a new business school building. We are still in the initial design phase of the project, but we are pleased to share additional renderings of the new state-of-the-art learning environment that will soon house the Lindner College of Business.

The new building is expected to open for classes in fall 2019 and additional information and artwork will be released as the project progresses.

We’d like to especially thank the family of the late Carl H. Lindner Jr. and American Financial Group, Inc. for supporting our new building with a transformative $11 million gift, the largest in the history of our business school.

Thank you for your support.
