Engage in experiential and collaborative learning.

The OSU MBA program challenges students with a rigorous and hands-on experience. You’ll be expected to jump in, collaborate with your peers, and put real-world projects into motion.

The Integrated Business Project (IBP) is the core of the MBA program. Working with a cross-disciplinary team over a nine-month period, you will create a research-driven, investor-ready  plan to take an innovative idea to market. Your team will participate in a business plan competition judged by seasoned entrepreneurs, executives, and venture capitalists who will provide valuable feedback.

The OSU MBA program will also give you an understanding of how sustainable business meets economic, social and environmental needs without compromising the future of any of them. Sustainability is woven into our curriculum –so that when you leave, you’ll be able to be smart, daring and make a positive impact on your world.
