About Ohio Business College

Ohio Business College has a long history of preparing individuals for success in the workforce.

What OBC Graduates Say...

We could go on and on about the quality, value and convenience of the programs at Ohio Business College. However, we would prefer to let our graduates do the talking for us. Take a look at what a few of our more than 8,000 graduates had to say about their experience at OBC.

“Ohio Business College was the right college choice for me. I made a lot of friends in the program, the location of the campus was close to where I live, and I continue to enjoy working in the field of dentistry.”

Robert Newlon
OBC Graduate

“I graduated December 2010 with an accounting degree from Ohio Business College in Sandusky. I had no experience in accounting other than my externship. I am so happy to announce that I have been employed with Bleistahl in Battle Creek, MI. My title is Administrative Assistant; however, I do all of their HR, Accounting and Quality duties. I am thrilled to finally be able to use my degree towards my new career. No more hard back-breaking labor! Thanks OBC!”
