About Ashland University

Since 1878, Ashland University has been a liberal arts and sciences institution, preparing students for exciting professions and careers. In 1978, our centennial year, we introduced the Ashland University MBA program, and 39 years later over 5,000 students have made their way through the program.

In 1990, Ashland University opened the Columbus Center Campus, offering a wide variety of classes and opportunities for prospective students outside of the Ashland, Ohio area. Our Columbus campus is built for serving professional and graduate students, and is one home of our 1 Year International MBA program.

In February of 2017, Ashland University announced that the 1 Year International MBA program would also be offered in Cleveland at the state-of-the-art Cleveland MBA Center. This location will enable students in the Cleveland area to earn their MBA in 1 year and travel the world on 2 international study tours.
