Graduates understand workplace dynamics and personalities and utilize these skills to maximize professional opportunities.

Part of the Spears School of Business, the OSU MBA program offers a strong, broad-based, professional core designed to develop your managerial competence and improve decision-making, communication and leadership skills.

By pursuing an MBA at OSU-Tulsa, students have access to the many economic and business resources available in a metropolitan area. Our internationally recognized MBA faculty work with students to help connect with other business professionals and receive the most from the program to meet personal and career goals.

Program Options

The OSU MBA Program offers part- and full-time options on the Tulsa campus. Students may tailor a plan of study to fit their schedule with convenient evening courses to fit around work and family schedules.


The part-time OSU MBA Program is designed for individuals with complex work and family schedules. The program is self-paced, enabling students to take a limited number of credit hours each semester. Part-time students take an average of three to five years to complete the program. All classes for the part-time program can be taken at OSU-Tulsa.


The 45-credit-hour program contains 33 hours of core courses and 12 hours of electives. Full-time students generally complete the program in two years. Almost all of the core classes and all electives can be taken at OSU-Tulsa. A one-hour professional development seminar required each semester meets several times each month and is taken on the Stillwater campus.

"In addition to great real-world knowledge I could take back to work the next day and use, the OSU MBA program was grounded in practical application. I wanted knowledge I could use to make my company better and that’s what I got at OSU-Tulsa."

- Sean Kouplen, MBA '02, Chairman and CEO, Regent Bank
