The Experience

Today’s successful physicians must be able to excel on multiple levels. At OSU, the M.B.A. Program is designed to integrate the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to help you achieve your career goals.

The D.O./M.B.A. is an accelerated program that allows D.O. students to gain their M.B.A. through the College of Business Administration in a single year. This 36-hour program captures 30 hours of the M.B.A.’s core course work in the fall and spring semesters with six elective M.B.A. hours taken in the summer.

Real-World Applications

The faculty, with varied academic, governmental, corporate and consulting backgrounds, bring real-world experience to the classroom. As a student you will receive the necessary theoretical background, but you will also learn about the latest trends and developments from faculty attuned to what is going on in the real world. Real-world applications may be in the form of a lecture, company-based consulting project, a practicum or other means.

Corporate Connections

The College of Business Administration is dedicated to providing a dynamic learning environment by seeking partnerships between academics and industry. Currently, the College is home to the Center for Risk Management, the Williams Institute for Quantitative Finance, the Tulsa Business Forum and the Executive Management Briefings. Each of these programs brings in national and international CEOs, policy makers, political leaders and business innovators from all backgrounds to share their experience and expertise with you.

Entrance Requirements

The D.O./M.B.A. is open to students of the College of Osteopathic Medicine with the approval of both the directors of Osteopathic Medicine and the M.B.A. Program. The GMAT and business prerequisites are not required.

Quantitative & Behavioral Curriculum

The M.B.A. curriculum is a blend of quantitative and behavioral classes, often with real-world applications, designed to reflect today’s integrated and global marketplace. While basic tools, theories and concepts are a constant, modifications as a result of feedback from the M.B.A. advisory committee, industry and alumni help keep the curriculum fresh, current and timely.
