Dean's Welcome

Empowering you for a lifetime of exceptional achievement is our goal. From a business perspective, the world’s rapid changes simply create more and more opportunities for people with the right skills, the right connections and a passion for their career. As a member of The College of Business & Economics student-faculty community, you will find your passion, acquire the skills and make the connections needed to succeed at an exceptional level for the rest of your life. 

Our students are prepared for life after college because they…
  • Work closely with faculty that have real-world experience.
  • Learn about different careers from industry speakers.
  • Intern with at least one company to learn the realities of a profession and establish connections that often lead to job offers upon graduation.
  • Solve problems for local businesses as part of class projects.
  • Complete a broad set of core business classes that allows students to try different fields without “wasting” credits.
  • Often double-major with non-business majors across Ashland University’s other colleges.
  • Have many opportunities to practice business social skills with industry-specific receptions such as meet the accountant night.
  • Have the opportunity to pursue international business experiences, often with scholarship financial support.
  • Practice using the same cutting-edge technology that they will find in the work-place.
