The Dublin Business Academy (DBA) provides students with an opportunity to get started on the path to a successful career in business. This unique and challenging non-traditional program is for students interested in business, graphic design, or entrepreneurship. DBA students will contribute and study all aspects of running a real world business. 

This includes: accounting, sales, graphic design, social media marketing, managing websites, creating financial documents, customer service, developing business models, logistics, and much more. Students also gain 21st century skills during this exciting experiential learning opportunity. 

The DBA is housed at Dublin Jerome High School where students operate an existing full service screen-printing and design company. Experienced teachers along with community business members guide students through the day-to-day operations of this business.  

DBA has partnerships with Ohio State University and Columbus State.
