Putting Your Business Degree to Work

The education you receive through the ORU College of Business equips you to find a great job upon graduation. The combination of one-on-one attention from professors who are recognized for their academic excellence, and the availability of highly beneficial internships and mentoring opportunities, provide the skills you need to confidently secure a position in your field of study.

In fact, an independent study conducted by the Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce showed that Tulsa area businesses identified ORU graduates as the most desirable graduates to hire out of over 20 academic institutions with a presence in the greater Tulsa metropolitan area.
