College of Business

Welcome Business Students

The College of Business has a wide variety of programs at both the baccalaureate and the master levels that provide the basis for an excellent education. The College of Business offers many undergraduate degrees tailored to meet your needs that focus on training you to succeed in areas of the business arena. Our faculty is committed to excellence in education and purposefully choose to invest themselves in helping students learn. Our students desire to learn and consistently perform at the highest level relative to their peers at other institutions, earning scores that rank ORU as the 95th percentile on the National Field Test offered by Educational Teaching Service, Inc.  

The School of Business is accredited through the nationally recognized
Accreditation Council for  Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). 

This past year, Dr. Marshal Wright was awarded a Teaching Excellence Award – an award given to only eight professors out of almost 600 ACBSP member institutions. 

The comprehensive, integrated curriculum is designed to provide a business education with a commitment to the Christian way of life.

The College of Business seeks to graduate well-qualified professionals who will provide expert business leadership as corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, government officials, counselors, nonprofit administrators, and teachers. The College of Business seeks to provide an education that will enable business graduates to manage people and resources within the context of Christian love and Biblical principles of concern for the welfare of the whole person. To this end, students are challenged to develop in body, mind, and spirit and to develop a perspective of wholeness in their personal lives so they might help their clients or students develop.

We are pleased to have this opportunity to welcome you and keep you informed on the accomplishments and activities within the College of Business here at Oral Roberts University.

We are excited to move forward in excellence and continuous growth of our programs and we welcome the opportunity to be of service to you in any way possible.

Our desire is to build upon accomplishments, nurture and leverage the special relationships and continue to inspire new generations of ORU business students to be leaders at home and on the job, to be changers of their worlds, both near and far, and to be pursuers of excellence as they go into every person's world.

Dr. James Russell oversees Management, Marketing and Business Administration, and he is our International Business Chair for these programs. Terry Unruh oversees Accounting and Finance, and he is the MIS Chair for both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
