Why earn an MBA online through OSU?

The online MBA at OSU is one of the highest ranked, most affordable accredited programs in the nation. Specifically designed for motivated, full-time working professionals who want to actively engage with faculty and fellow students, courses are taught by the same full-time faculty in the Spears School of Business who teach on campus.
OSU’s program provides maximum flexibility for students while offering the same high level of academic excellence found on campus.


The Spears School of Business offers online programs as an alternative way to earn a degree. We believe that students should have access to high-quality, affordable education, regardless of their schedule or location. Online courses are available 24/7, and are designed with multimedia content and virtual activities to promote student collaboration.


The online MBA is a 33-credit-hour, part-time program that can be completed in as little as 12 months. In addition to the general MBA, degree concentrations are available.



  • Applicants must have a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university and submit transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.
  • Three years professional work experience or competitive GMAT/GRE score.
  • Requires two professional letters of recommendation and a statement of purpose.
  • Online MBA application deadlines:
