Program Structure

Study on your schedule! The MBA program is offered both onsite or online to meet your needs as a busy, working adult. Take just one class per week and earn your degree in two years. Take two classes per week and complete the program in just 12-16 months.

Several types of courses combine to form the curriculum for your MBA. Some courses are designed to set your graduate-level business education on a firm foundation while others allow you to customize your experience to fit your interests and your goals for the future.

Preparatory Courses

Students with bachelor’s degrees in disciplines other than business may need to complete leveling work (the Common Professional Component) before enrolling in Oklahoma Christian University’s MBA program. Credits for these preparatory courses are accepted from any accredited college or university.

Core Courses

Students with undergraduate degrees in business and no deficiencies in prescribed undergraduate courses may go directly into the courses for OC’s MBA program. The core consists of nine prescribed courses in business. With approval, as many as six transfer hours may be applied toward the degree.

Specialization Courses

After completing the preparatory courses (if required) and the core courses, students may select one of nine specialty tracks: Accounting, Finance, Health Services Management, Human Resources, International Business, Leadership and Organizational Development, Marketing, Nonprofit Organization Management, and Project Management. As an alternative, students can choose any three courses from the various tracks and receive a general MBA degree.
