Oklahoma Baptist University recently ranked third nationally on a list of "50 Best Value Christian MBA Programs 2015." In an article published on www.christianuniversitiesonline.org, an independent resource informing prospective students and their families about Christian education, editor Michael Templeton named OBU alongside other prominent Christian universities.
The ranking was developed by first focusing on schools with residential MBA programs. Several criteria were then used to rank the schools, including the number of MBA concentrations offered, tuition costs and whether or not the program has a special business school accreditation.
OBU's MBA program features four areas of specialization, in addition to a general MBA. Students may complete tracks in International Business, Leadership, Project Management or Energy Management. OBU's MBA tuition costs fall into the low range for degrees of this type, and 100 percent of OBU's MBA graduates are employed at graduation, experiencing an overall 20 to 30 percent increase in salary after graduating.
This ranking comes on the heels of other national and regional recognitions for OBU, including a spot as the highest ranked private university in Oklahoma on Great Value College's rankings of 50 Great Affordable Colleges in the Midwest; honors as a top 10 regional college in the West by U.S. News and World Report for the last 23 years; and Oklahoma's highest rated regional college in the U.S. News rankings for 21 consecutive years. OBU also ranked seventh nationally on a list "50 Christian Colleges with the Lowest Debt Burden" and recently announced it will offer guaranteed financial awards to all incoming freshmen beginning fall 2015.
