Undergraduate Business Majors and Minors

Our AACSB International accredited undergraduate programs take a balanced approach to learning. We don't simply teach business concepts; we prepare our students to use what they learn to become valuable members of their future employer's team.

We emphasize teamwork and technology, and we help our students develop expertise in a wide range of business software applications. An international perspective is blended throughout the curriculum and students are prepared to conduct business wherever their business takes them.

In addition, students can enrich their education through participation in programs such as the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge (TURC), internships and membership in our professional organizations.
