Jumpstart your career


Regardless of the career path or industry, earning a Master of Business Administration degree from OSU-Tulsa can increase employability, boost salary and enhance leadership skills.

Management Professor Dr. Raj Basu will discuss the career advantages of pursuing an MBA during two upcoming information sessions. Both sessions are in North Hall 140:

The 45-credit-hour OSU program consists of 33 hours of core courses and 12 hours of electives.

OSU-Tulsa offers part-time and full-time options to enable students to choose schedules that are convenient to them. Courses are available online or at the downtown campus.

The part-time option is designed to allow maximum flexibility for students with work and family schedules. The program is self-paced and allows students to take a limited number of credit hours each semester. Part-time students generally complete the MBA degree in three to five years. All classes for the part-time program can be taken at OSU-Tulsa.

Full-time students generally complete the program in two years. Most core classes and all electives can be taken at OSU-Tulsa. A one-hour professional development seminar is required each semester and is taken at the Stillwater campus.

OSU-Tulsa also offers concentrations in a variety of business disciplines, including general, business sustainability, entrepreneurship, human resource management, information assurance, marketing analytics and nonprofit management.

According to the Graduate Management Admissions Council, employees who plan to stay with their current employer may expect a 39 percent increase in salary after earning their MBAs.

The quality of the degree program also plays a large part in salary increases. OSU’s Spears School of Business was recently named the fifth best business school in the nation for the value and return on investment for the MBA degree, according to Student Loan Hero.

OSU-Tulsa advisers are available to help students get the greatest amount of financial aid possible, including scholarships, grants, work-study and student loans. The school also offers a convenient payment option plan.

In addition, students can start taking classes toward an MBA even if they haven’t been fully admitted to the program.

Many companies offer a tuition reimbursement program as part of their employee benefits, so those interested should check with their employer’s Human Resources department.
