Do you live outside Oklahoma City? Do you travel frequently? Do you prefer to study at home rather than in a classroom? If you answered, “Yes”, this unique online program is for you.
Interactive, not passive –
Other online MBA programs sit you in front of a monitor to listen to prerecorded lectures then ask you to memorize and regurgitate information. Our online MBA program places you in the middle of the action in a virtual world. Each course is built around an academic subject (i.e. Marketing or Accounting) but taught through an interactive program in which you learn the subject matter by doing within the context of a virtual business. You learn what you need to learn, but you learn by doing…
In the same way you learn on the job, you learn in this MBA program by listening, reading, interacting, applying, presenting reports, and completing assignments given by superiors. This is not theory in the classroom. This is the way online learning should be – practical.
Academically Rigorous –
Oklahoma Baptist University has built a reputation for academic excellence. OBU is again the state’s highest ranked regional university for the 19th consecutive year. Our professors guide you through the process of learning such that you don’t just get by, you truly learn in a challenging environment.
Adaptable to you –
Assignments allow you to apply lessons learned in your current place of employment. You are asked to reflect and apply information in ways that relate to you. This leads to immediate growth.
Foundational Ethics –
At the OBU Graduate School, we utilize materials from Character First to help you strengthen your business ethic. You will be encouraged and invited to join us at events such as luncheons with the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium at the Petroleum Club each month. An MBA from OBU is not just a bunch of head knowledge. We want to produce graduates who not only succeed, but succeed in doing what is right.
