Schmidthorst College of Business


BGSU is redefining business education to prepare creative and innovative business leaders who can reinvent the way we do business and create new businesses. In today’s increasingly global economy, the next generation of business leaders need to have the skills to initiate change, embrace diversity, work within teams and make sense of complexity and data while leveraging technology. With our progressive, entrepreneurial curriculum provided in the state-of-the-art Robert W. and Patricia A. Maurer Center, BGSU will be a national leader in business education.
