In this track you will gain a global perspective on business whether your focus is business in Oklahoma or around the world. You will have the opportunity to experience global business first-hand during the International Business Practicum. Travel to a foreign country, learn local business customs and encounter new, exciting cultures.
Now it is possible! We have included the cost of international travel for our International Business students into the price of tuition!
The highlight of the OBU MBA in International Business is “The Trip”. The International Business Practicum course is a coordinated and supervised overseas trip with emphasis on culture, limitations and business opportunities. Past destinations include Europe, Brazil, Dubai, China, and Costa Rica. During your time overseas you will interact with international business executives and learn how they view business on the world stage. You will gain insight into differing managerial styles and cultures. We even throw in a little fun along the way. By far, students continually say this is the highlight of their studies. It could be yours as well.
Our nation operates in a global economy. Our state and the companies in it interact with companies from around the world. We need business leaders in Oklahoma who know how to think at the global level. This program will help you understand how world influences impact decisions right here in Oklahoma.
Courses are designed to help a student think on the world stage, but will also equip the individual to apply skills and concepts learned to one's working environment. Courses are structured such that you can apply the material covered to situations you face every day. This is not a one-size-fits-all instructional format. Group projects, papers and readings can be adapted to your specific needs. Students have launched businesses and developed solutions for their current employer through their projects here at OBU. Yes, it’s a big world, but it has to work in your office as well.
At the OBU Graduate School, we utilize materials from our Ethics, Business Law and Leadership course to help you strengthen your business ethic. From time to time, students are encouraged and invited to attend an Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium luncheon at the Petroleum Club. 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.
