About OBC

Ohio Business College has a long history of preparing individuals for success in the workforce. OBC was founded in 1903 as Lorain Business College in Lorain, Ohio. It was a private, co-educational career school. In the 1980s, the school gained accreditations that were critical to its growth. Since then, the school has opened additional campuses in Sandusky and Dayton and changed its name to what it is today: Ohio Business College.
