FROM EXPLORING INDUSTRIES, TO EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS Preparing leaders of tomorrow to make impacts in today's top industries.
First of Its Kind
The Clusters program is the first of its kind in the nation, and is designed to help students dive into a specific industry and stand out in a crowded marketplace.
C-suite executives and Fisher College of Business experts take high-achieving undergraduate students deep inside the industry of their choice for a full academic year. The result: a depth of material and live business experiences typically found at the graduate level.
Industry Clusters students are uniquely prepared to step out of the classroom and into the practice of business. To date, 72% of eligible Industry Clusters students have secured full-time internships or jobs with leading companies across the nation and around the world.
Examine the business practice of companies that have created some of the strongest brands in the world by organizations that are renowned for their marketing, management development, and breakthrough innovations.
This cluster allows students to be immersed in every aspect of manufacturing and to gain firsthand experience with timely topics such as the labor force, technology, robotics, procurement, and Lean Six Sigma.
This cluster will expose students to the unique characteristics, capabilities, challenges, and opportunities in the middle market, which represents companies with annual revenues between $10 million and $1 billion.
Students will gain in-depth knowledge about the retail industry by being introduced to the conceptualization and production of goods, comparing in-store and online shopping strategies and exploring e-commerce channels.
NEW for the 2017-2018 academic year. Introduction to the business decisions made by various departments/divisions of a sports business. Develop an understanding of the tools and techniques used by these businesses to make strategic, data-driven decisions that will maximize business performance and efficiency.
The Industry Clusters program was my most valuable experience at Ohio State. It closed the gap between classroom and career, and led to a job offer from one of the participating companies.
