"These renderings propose a building to accommodate a college experiencing unprecedented growth, an enviable rise in national rankings, leading edge programs in corporate engagement and the competitiveness of our student leaders in business competitions and entrepreneurship which demand new and innovative learning spaces like this type of building affords," said UC Interim President Beverly J. Davenport.
The current building, located at 2925 Campus Green Drive, is nearly three decades old and unable to accommodate the colleges rapid growth. Enrollment in undergraduate and graduate business degrees have both increased, up 30 percent and 100 percent since 2010. About one third of UC business classes are now taught outside Lindner Hall.
Thank you to our generous donors who have stepped up to invest in not only a building, but the future of the Lindner College of Business and the Greater Cincinnati business community, said UC Foundation President Rodney Grabowski. The new building will transform the learning experience for students, while also providing more vital space for our faculty, staff and visiting business professionals.
In recent years, the Lindner College of Business has received numerous national accolades. Its MBA program has earned the biggest three-year rankings jump in the country in U.S. News & World Report and the Lindner MBA was recently ranked the No. 1 best value MBA program in the United States by CollegeAtlas.org. Several of its undergraduates programs are also nationally ranked, including its marketing program which Bloomberg Businessweek recently ranked No. 5 in the nation among public universities. The new building will help propel this growth and spur further national and international recognition.
