Cedarville University’s business program, according to the website Zippia, is ranked among Ohio’s top 10 programs — and is the highest ranked in the Miami Valley.

Ohio State University is ranked atop the list. Other schools on the list include Miami University, the University of Cincinnati and Case Western Reserve. Cedarville is ranked 10th. 

Zippia is a new website dedicated to helping recent college grads with their careers. Factors that influenced the statewide ranking include the quality of the program and how students perform after college. 

“Our rankings focus on the strength of each business program and how well it prepares its graduates for extended, successful careers,” said Chris Kolmar, head of marketing at Zippia. “If you’re looking to make a savvy business decision about where to get your business degree, you want to understand the long-term return on investment of the college you attend. Universities like Cedarville offer graduates the opportunity to start their career on the right foot.”

Dr. Jeff Haymond, dean of the school of business administration, believes the ranking validates the exceptional learning that takes place at Cedarville University. 

“We're honored to be recognized as one of the best Ohio business colleges,” said Haymond. “We remain committed to our pursuit of excellence so that our graduates will honor God with their exceptional job performance. Our students deserve a great business school, and we'll continue doing our best to prepare tomorrow's business leaders.”
