The Spears MBA: What You Need To Know

Established in 1960, Oklahoma State University’s Spears School of Business MBA is centered around teamwork, entrepreneurship, and innovation, creating versatile and ambitious professionals. The degree is designed to elevate business-minded individuals professionally and maximize personal networking potential at any stage of one’s career.

OSU offers their MBA program on its original Stillwater campus, a city known for its strong roots in agriculture and education and their Tulsa campus, a city known for its large Art Deco district.

The OSU MBA spans 33 to 37 credit hours, and can be completed in a 12-month, 18-month, or 2-year format. Aside from the core curriculum, the degree allows for 9 elective hours. The MBA curriculum incorporates learning skills to navigate the current business world that is becoming increasingly complex and rapidly changing. OSU’s customizable MBA focuses on teaching techniques and focuses leadership, teamwork, and innovation.

To make their degree more personalized, OSU MBAs can pursue a concentration in Accounting, Business Sustainability, Data Science, Economics, Energy Business, Entrepreneurship, Finance & Investment Banking, Global Marketing, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Human Resource Management, Information Assurance, Marketing Analytics, and Nonprofit Management.

Outside of the required curriculum, MBAs can partake in conferences, student-led clubs, and case competitions – the most popular being the annual Big 12 Case Competition, where students apply knowledge to real-world settings by analyzing, researching, and generating business solutions. Career outcomes look great at OSU, with 98% of their most recent MBA class employed within three months of graduation.

“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,” says past MBA Sean Kouplen on OSU’s site.
