Behind the scenes: getting to know Weatherhead

Whether your ticket to town is booked or you're considering a trip soon, we bet you're wondering what you can expect when you visit Weatherhead School of Management. Read on to learn how we showcase our school and Cleveland, Ohio.

What is Cleveland all about?

From tours of downtown Cleveland and the city's prominent neighborhoods to dinners with local leaders and our “Welcome to Cleveland Fair”, you'll get the chance to ask about living, working, studying and transitioning to Cleveland.

Wining and dining

As you will come to find out, Cleveland has a great food scene. And when it comes to sharing insider foodie knowledge, we're all up for it. We've been known to travel all across the city to ensure our guests get a true taste of our delicious city, or we just bring the goods straight to Weatherhead! Because let's be real, if you're going to study here, you're going to need to eat. And you might as well eat really good food. 

Getting down to business

We know it's important that you get a feel for the local economy and prospering businesses here in town. Whether the local leaders come to Peter B. Lewis Building or we take our visitors on-site, you often get to meet and hear from local leaders of organizations such as, Greater Cleveland Partnership. We want to make sure you know about their efforts to cultivate attractive business conditions that create jobs, grow investment and improve the economic prosperity of the region. 

Psssst. Did you know that all of these companies are headquartered in the Cleveland area? Here are some of the companies that we visit when prospective students come to town. 

Experience the classroom with Weatherhead faculty

It's not all business as usual around here. Our faculty put a great emphasis on practical hands-on, real-world learning and thinking. When you visit, you will have the opportunity to experience what it's like to learn at Weatherhead with faculty such as Simon Peck, our Associate Dean for MBA programs. 

Find out more about our programs and our new Design & Innovation Department and why Weatherhead is a great #place2think!

Fun and games

Aside from the mind-blowing thinking we do around here, we also like to have a good time. Cleveland has plenty of to offer and we make sure you get a feel for the city via tours of the Progressive Field baseball stadium, the Cleveland Museum of Art and Playhouse Square theater district, just to name a few. If you visit us in February, you may even get the chance to join current students and alumni, and win great (and we mean great) raffle prizes at our annual Casino Night scholarship fundraising event.
