The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Scholarship Advisement Program and Oklahoma Christian University are launching a new MBA scholarship program for tribal members. According to Dr. Ken Johnson, chair of the Graduate School of Business at OC, this scholarship program will encourage and assist tribal members in seeking an advanced degree, which can be extremely beneficial in not only finding employment, but enhancing careers.
Johnson anticipates that most if not all of the Choctaw students will complete the MBA program online. "Being able to complete our fast-track MBA program online is certainly an attractive feature for students who are pressured for time with job and family commitments,” he said. "Our curriculum’s emphasis on ethics, practical knowledge and real-world application, is very attractive to employers who highly value those attributes. Communication, economics, finance, global perspectives, leadership, management, marketing, organizational issues, and technology are taught by faculty members who bring a wealth of business experience and academic preparation to the classroom.”
The MBA program grants admission for the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
