About Us

The University of Cincinnati is a thriving top-25 research university situated in a city with eight Fortune 500 companies. The Lindner College of Business leverages this strength to offer students an environment of academic excellence with an emphasis on experiential learning.  The UC Marketing Department plays a strong role in the University’s “Next Lives Here” strategic plan and the Digital Futures and Innovation District initiatives. 

The Department of Marketing houses the largest undergraduate major on campus, an online/on-campus Master of Science in Marketing program, as well as a strong Ph.D. program.   Our department is both collegial and productive with a strong commitment to quality teaching and research.

Cincinnati is a well-connected city with a temperate climate and low cost of living.  Located on the banks of the Ohio River, it has a vibrant downtown, and numerous suburbs all conveniently located within 30 minutes of the University.  While the region contains over two million people, Cincinnati combines small-town friendliness with all of the advantages of a big city.  It offers a lively downtown district filled with breweries, unique restaurants, events and attractions, including professional sports.  Cincinnati is known as “the cradle of brands” and an Ohio Hub of Consumer Marketing and Innovation. The University is strategically located in a diverse business environment that includes more Fortune 500 companies per capita than New York, Los Angeles, Boston, or Chicago.  It also has a thriving arts community including ballet, opera, art museums, symphony, and theater.  

Cincinnati wins high praise on many dimensions including low housing costs and high quality education and health care. Newsweek named Cincinnati’s Findlay Market as one of the “Ten Best Food Markets in the World.”  The community is welcoming, friendly, and inclusive. Mashable has ranked Cincinnati one of America’s most social cities, and the Human Rights Campaign gives us a perfect score on its Municipal Equality Index for LGBTQ inclusiveness.
