The MBA Program at UCO is a 16-month cohort-based program consisting of eight-week classes and 35 credit hours. All MBA classes meet in the evenings in Downtown OKC, to give working professionals the flexibility they need to earn their MBA while working full-time. Each student is placed in a cohort intended to enhance the learning environment through teamwork and career-building relationships.

A bootcamp and orientation session, for which students earn one hour of MBA credit, takes place the week before the start of the first semester. During the bootcamp sessions new students will partake in team-building activities, networking activities and assessments, as well as handle logistics such as obtaining student IDs, parking decals and textbooks.


The UCO MBA is the best value in the metro! Our total tuition and fees for in-state students continue to be lower than any other MBA program in the OKC Metro, while still offering you an education focused on quality and return on investment.
