Tulsa Professional MBA

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. The Tulsa Professional MBA requires a minimum of 33 credit hours for graduation, which means you could have your OSU MBA in as few as 18 months. Your degree, your schedule. 

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.

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.

"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
Secretary of Commerce and Workforce Development, State of Oklahoma
