Advancing careers

The OSU College of Professional Studies at OSU-Tulsa, offers bachelor's degree programs designed for mid-career professionals looking to advance at their current workplace or change careers. Degree programs are available online or in person and have real-world application to students’ career goals.

Workforce development solutions for your organization

We consult with human resources and leadership teams to learn your organization’s and employees’ education and training needs and create a tailored plan for you to:
  • Promote from within by providing your star performers with curated degree and certificate programs that 
    blend leadership education with industry-specific skills.
  • Retain valuable employees with advanced educational opportunities, such as workshops, certificates or 
    finishing a degree. 
  • Retrain your workforce to meet the ever-changing needs of our modern economy with short courses 
    covering the latest upskilling trends.

A new form of workforce development

The need

A recent Market Street report showed the Tulsa metro area is 7.5 percentage points behind the rest of the nation in 25 to 44-year-olds with bachelor’s degrees. An estimated 90,000 Tulsans have some college credit, but no four-year degree – a major barrier to career advancement and attracting companies to the city. 

The benefit

Many studies, including one by the Brookings Institute, tell us that the earnings profiles of bachelor’s degree graduates outperforms those of associate and high school degree graduates.

The solution

Many working adults have some college credit, but life has paused their education. We remove barriers to obtaining bachelor’s degrees by providing flexible, focused programs that maximize credit for prior learning, transfer credit and military credits.
