New ODU Adult & Continuing Education Program Offers Expanded Formats



Columbus, OH – Ohio Dominican University is excited to announce significant enhancements to its adult education program to better serve the needs of current and future students. 

Recent improvements include: 

  • Changing its name from LEAD to Adult & Continuing Education; this more accurately represents the University’s offerings, and better reflects its goal to pursue additional degree and certificate programs for adult learners. 
  • Relocating its adult education operations, offices and classes from the Airport Drive location to ODU’s main campus at 1216 Sunbury Road; students will have easier access to the University’s academic and business resources. 
  • Identifying a permanent location for ODU’s Dublin campus so it can better serve the needs of students who live and work in the northwest suburbs. 
  • Restructuring ODU’s MBA program, making it easier for prospective students to explore and compare all of the formats in which they can earn an MBA. 

“More adults are pursuing a college education now than ever before, and they desire a program that is flexible, convenient and helps them gain real-world knowledge, tools and skills they can use to move forward in their career,” said Karen Gray, ODU’s executive director of Adult Education. “These improvements modernize and strengthen almost every aspect of ODU’s Adult & Continuing Education program, from its market-sensitive curriculum to the convenient locations in which students may attend class.”  

ODU’s Adult & Continuing Education program offers classes at its Dublin location on Blazer Parkway and at ODU’s main campus on Sunbury Road in Columbus. The following degrees and certificates are available: Associate of Science in Business Administration; Bachelor of Science in Accounting; Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; Certificate in Accounting; and Master of Business Administration. ODU also recently launched a Master of Science in Medical Practice Management as well as a certificate option.
