Northeast Ohio is home to nearly 40% of Fortune 500 companies, Cleveland has a low cost of living, easy commute times and heartily participates in all four seasons. But what many don’t know is that it’s home to James Beard restaurants and Top Chefs. That our summers are filled with festivals by the lake, free concerts in the park and classical music by top five orchestras in outdoor amphitheaters.
The city is teeming with culture, entertainment and a thriving business community which makes for a unique learning laboratory that our students can experience in a multitude of ways. Want to start your own company? No problem. Organizations like Jump Start and Plug and Play have you covered. Want to intern at a Fortune 500 company? Our Career Management Office can get you there. Our students intern at places like Key Bank, Lubrizol, Progressive and more.
Students will also interface with Cleveland’s business community in the classroom, due to Weatherhead’s emphasis on experiential learning. They act as consultants for real companies to solve business problems, work with real data for research and analysis and attend seminars and lectures with executives on campus.
So when our students are wrapping their days at their summer internship or polishing off those mid-term papers, they have options. They can see Picassos and Monets at the Cleveland Museum of Art, less than a half mile from campus, enjoy chilled oysters at Alley Cat’s waterfront oyster bar, or devour some pungent dishes at the Cleveland Garlic Festival (we’re not joking.) There’s something for just about everyone!
