International Business

The bachelor of science in business administration program in international business provides a fundamental understanding of the global business environment and develops decision-making capabilities in the international setting. It spans cultures, economic conditions, political and legal systems and competitive climates. The program gives students a broad, comprehensive business education and specific international business courses, international environment courses, modest foreign language competency and a minor field in any business field. Students are encouraged to seek study-abroad opportunities and other avenues for expanding their cross-cultural understanding.

OSU-Tulsa is downtown Tulsa's public comprehensive research university, offering junior- and senior-level classes with flexible schedules designed for working adults. OSU-Tulsa students are OSU students, which means your degree is an Oklahoma State University degree -- the same degree students in Stillwater receive. Students generally transfer to OSU-Tulsa with an associate's degree or at least 45 credit hours from another institution. The majority of our students take their first two years at Tulsa Community College or another local two- or four-year school, but students have transferred to OSU-Tulsa from colleges and universities across the country.
