DO/MBA Program

The OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine offers a joint Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) and Master's of Business Administration degree (MBA) with the OSU Spears School of Business

The DO/MBA Experience

Today's successful physicians must be able to excel on multiple levels. At Oklahoma State University, the MBA program is designed to integrate the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to help you achieve your career goals.


The DO/MBA is an accelerated program that allows DO students to gain their MBA through the OSU Spears School of Business in a single year.


This 36-hour program captures 30 hours of the MBA's core coursework in the fall and spring semesters. Six hours of elective credit can be shared from the DO coursework or business electives of the students' choice.


Classes are held at the OSU-Tulsa campus, with an occasional course at the OSU main campus in Stillwater, OK.


Entrance Requirements

The DO/MBA program is open to current and selected new students of the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine with the approval of both the College and the MBA Program. The Graduate Medical Aptitude Test (GMAT) and business prerequisites are not required.


Students may pursue the DO/MBA on one of two tracks: 2-1-2 or 1-4. Current students may apply for the dual degree on the 2-1-2 track at any time during their first or second year of medical school. New students admitted into the 1-4 track of the program must complete one full year of MBA degree requirements and remain in good academic standing with the graduate college in order to retain deferred admission into the DO program.


Application Process

Current MSI and MSII students applying to the 2-1-2 track must make direct inquiry to the Office of Admissions before beginning the MBA application process.


Prospective students who wish to pursue application to the DO/MBA program on the 1-4 track must indicate their interest on the supplemental application. Prior to beginning the MBA application process, dual degree candidates for the 1-4 track must have a successful interview with an offer of deferred admission to the DO program.

Upon the request of admissions, applicants must submit the following:

  • Official MCAT score
  • DO/MBA application
  • Statement of objectives
  • 3 letters of recommendation
  • Graduate College application - $40 application fee
