We take a unique approach to career management that focuses on student outcomes. The results speak for themselves.
Industries and careers are complex, but we work with every student to develop a personalized career management plan to help you meet your professional goals. As a part of your OHIO Guarantee+ graduation plan, we’ll provide you with the mentorship, coaching, and career milestones that support your journey. Here are just a few of the additional benefits you’ll enjoy as a business student at OHIO:
All students in the COB complete two required courses that not only serve as an introduction to the college and career management practices, but that also provide tactical strategies for career searches and activities related to your intentional career management.
In the COB, all students complete at least one internship or experiential education program – but more than 35% of business students complete multiple internships! Our internship immersion class prepares you for your internship and provides strategies for making the most of your experiential opportunities, and students participate in check-ins with career coaches to ensure the internship is a valuable experience (94% agree!).
Our industry outreach efforts bring major employers to you. Nearly 300 employers recruit Business Bobcats each year through career fairs, on-campus and virtual events, interviews, and speaker series such as the OHIO Business Conference and the Darren Butler Sports Business Forum.
