Student Life

Drawing “a good mix of working professionals and recent graduates,” TU students come from “a diverse background ethnically, academically, and professionally.” Through group work and class discussions, “the diverse professional backgrounds of many of the students…lends itself to a very enriching atmosphere.” Since the majority of students are “full-time working professionals or graduate student assistants that are taking classes part time,” students admit that, “There isn’t much time to take part in social or commu­nity activities.” Nonetheless, the school offers plenty of opportunities for TU students to get together socially. For example, “graduate student luncheons take place every month where all graduate students are invited to eat and mingle.” In addition, “there are many opportunities to meet other graduate students and employers at company panel ses­sions, etiquette dinners, and meet-and-greet times off campus.” Located on the edge of downtown Tulsa, “The campus is not large, but it is very beauti­ful and has all of the amenities of a larger university, just on a smaller scale.” Looking to the future, the school’s administration is “continually improving the campus;” For exam­ple, “Over the past three to four years they have built suite-style dormitories for student housing,” in an effort to promote “a more united student body, and a better overall…experience.” In addition, “The fitness facility is first class” and many students make use of the well-stocked library. The surrounding area is home to many students, and they “feel very safe walking to class in the evening.”

Career

With a “strong reputation in the energy industry” and a “prestigious reputation” in the area, TU students are well-positioned to find a choice position after graduating from the MBA program. For assistance with the career planning and placement process, “TU has a Business Career Center that is entirely focused on job placement for business students.” Through the Business Center, students have access to myriad services, including resume and cover letter revisions, mock interviews, salary information, career workshops, and various online resources and job boards. In addition, “The events and workshops…allow students to have one-on-one time with executives of Fortune 500 companies.” Recently, TU graduates have taken jobs at organizations including Bank of Oklahoma, ConocoPhillips, Deloitte Consulting, DHL, GE, Grant Thornton, Honeywell International, IBM, Level 3 Communications, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Toyota, Trammel Crow, and the U.S. Government.

Students Say

The University of Tulsa operates a rigorous and contemporary MBA program within the context of a small, friendly, private school environment. With a “low student-to-profes­sor ratio,” class sizes are uniformly small, and “you really get a chance to develop rela­tionships with the faculty and other students.” In the classroom, the teaching staff gets top marks for experience: “Many of them are leaders in their fields and have remained very current and relevant to the vast changes we are seeing economically and globally.” They are also excellent educators, and “although classes are difficult and grades are com­petitive, the professors are able to drive home the overall picture of what we are study­ing and why.” Most importantly, TU is a thoroughly supportive environment, so it’s easy to stay on the right track academically. If a student needs extra help (or just wants to chat), “Professors are all readily available outside of class and genuinely interested in the well-being of each student.” In addition, staff and advisors “work with students to ensure that we follow the right path, are able to do what we want and need to do, and succeed in all areas of our academic lives.” A current student adds, “I have had a great experience in regards to the administration, especially the graduate advisor. She has been instrumental in helping me navigate course loads.” Although TU is a small school, the MBA program is constantly working to remain on the cutting edge. With an eye towards industry trends, administrators “recently revamped the course work to reflect what companies stated that they were looking for in MBA grads, and they also are constantly injecting anything current into the courses, seminars, and lectures.” A current student observes, administrators “are constantly seeking outside input from various companies and individuals so that their students are as best prepared upon graduation as they can be.” To offer one example, business ethics has been heavily introduced into the curriculum, which students say is “refreshing and relevant.” In addi­tion, the school recently redesigned the academic calendar from semesters to quarters. While they admit that, “the new MBA program still has some kinks to work out,” stu­dents appreciate the fact that they can now “take a wider variety of courses.” In addition to course work, TU students have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activi­ties on and off campus. A particularly popular offering, “the Friends of Finance organi­zation, brings in CEOs, presidents of Fortune 500 companies, etc., to speak to the business students, and also offers a special session afterwards for students to ask the speaker questions one-on-one.”
