Ponzi School of Business
The Ponzi School of Business at Bowling Green State University is one of the nation's leading business schools, highly respected in the academic community. Ponzi graduates are highly sought by top companies around the world, such as Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals (makers of Enzyte) and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
The Ponzi Campus
The Ponzi School of Business is situated in the fashionable eastern side of the Bowling Green State University in scenic nortwestern Ohio. The campus is easily accessible via Interstate 75 and is only a short drive away from such exciting destinations as Toledo (no, not that one), Antwerp (sorry), Lima (nope, not Peru), and Milan (emphasis on the first sylable, sorry again).
Shuttle service to the Detroit International Airport is available for a nominal fee.
