An affordable, flexible degree from a university you know

OSU’s Tulsa Professional MBA Program at OSU-Tulsa was created for students with complex work and family schedules. It is designed with flexibility in mind and can be completed at your pace. Your degree, your schedule.

Our key word is flexible. Course options allow you to adjust your class schedule to fit with your life. Our eight-week hybrid courses blend the convenience of online with limited in-person meetings and networking with Tulsa-area business leaders. Online and in-person courses are also available.

But you won't sacrifice quality for convenience. OSU Spears School of Business was ranked the top part-time MBA in Oklahoma by U.S. News & World Report for 2022, and our AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.

The program offers a strong, broad-based, professional core designed to develop your managerial competence and improve decision-making, communication and leadership skills. You can then choose to customize your MBA with embedded graduate certificates that provide additional value with expertise in a specialized topic.

Application deadlines are April 15 or June 1 for the fall semester and Nov. 1 for the spring semester.

How do I request an entrance exam waiver?

If you have a strong undergraduate GPA and more than five years of post-graduation work experience, you may be a candidate to request a GMAT waiver. Waivers are limited and evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Email us for more information about the process.

Keep in mind: students with exceptional GMAT scores are eligible for scholarships, so you may want to consider taking the exam regardless.
