Overhead view of Carl H. Lindner Hall

Over the past four years, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business has earned national acclaim from multiple media sources, including earning the second largest ranking increase of any Top 100 Undergraduate Business Program as well as being ranked No. 19 among public online MBA programs in the nation in U.S. News & World Report. Most recently, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the Lindner MBA program No. 1 in Ohio, No. 1 in the Midwest among public institutions, and No. 6 nationally among public institutions in terms of alumni satisfaction.

Such national acclaim has led to multiple consecutive years of record-breaking student applications, student enrollments and student quality metrics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Graduate enrollment has increased 200 percent and undergraduate enrollment has increased 50 percent since 2010. The school’s current building is unable to accommodate the college’s rapid growth as more than one third of business classes are now taught outside Lindner Hall.

In June 2016, the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees approved the planning of a new business school building. The new building, which celebrated its grand opening on September 19, 2019, will help propel Lindner’s growth as well as spur further national and international recognition.
