The Oregon State Graduate Business Programs are committed to educating our students to be the kind of people we want to work for – people who work hard, earn success and lead by example as innovative, socially responsible and globally minded business people.
The Oregon State MBA offers a variety of degree programs and certificates to meet the needs of our students, and we offer programs as part-time and full-time in Corvallis, as well as programs in Portland.
Our students have a variety of academic backgrounds; students who do not have an undergraduate degree in business or a business minor will complete coursework that provides a solid foundation of business knowledge. Oregon State MBA programs are 60 credit-hours in length (45 credit-hours for students who qualify for the accelerated program) and include both core and track-specific coursework. Students who have earned an undergraduate business degree or business minor from an accredited institution within the past 10 years may be eligible to participate in our 45 credit-hour accelerated program.
The OSU Ph.D. in Business Administration program trains doctoral students for careers as professors at high-quality research-oriented colleges and universities. This training includes providing them with a program of course work that will prepare them to conduct quality business research, involving them in faculty-sponsored research projects as co-investigators and co-authors, supporting the development of their own research agendas, providing them with training and experience in teaching, and assimilating them into all aspects of academics related to their business discipline (e.g., teaching, research, and service). The program offers two options: Accounting and Innovation/Commercialization.
The Ph.D. program accepts applications every other year. Please check the College of Business website learn more.
