Business Management & Accounting is by far the most important. Anyone can learn how to run a Zero turn, and a string trimmer. Not everyone can run a business.

The Ohio State University ATI. They have a great Landscaping program. Check out this link to learn more about it. It's an Associate's degree; but if you want a Bachelor's in something similar, you can go to OSU main campus and major in Landscape Horticulture through CFAES. This is just my opinion, but Main Campus is where it's at. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! I love it here.

Hey bro I'm a senior at The University of Akron and I will have a degree in business at the end of this fall. I mean you don't need a degree to make a millions dollars...I've had my own business for two years and the degree helps a lot ,but it's all what you make it.

Look at Penn State they have a division that is landscape contracting and since its in your state you would get a good deal.

Penn state would be awesome. I really wanna go there for their rugby program as well. Did not know that they had a landscaping division!
