Program Overview

Oral Roberts University’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Entrepreneurship degree will empower you to: Activate your purpose; Create profit; and Impact the world.

The BBA in Entrepreneurship degree is designed to equip you to launch your own business and succeed in a highly competitive marketplace. The business administration cognate provides you with business fundamentals in accounting, finance, management and marketing while the entrepreneurial core curriculum sharpens your aptitude for entrepreneurial thinking, develops your ability to conceive and create cutting edge business models, and provides you with the tools to start and operate a business.

The degree program takes you beyond the classroom by providing many hands-on experiences both locally and globally. For instance, you can compete in our flagship startup competition – The Launch – where you will receive mentoring, develop your strategy, and pitch to investors. You also have many opportunities to collaborate and intern with successful entrepreneurs across the Tulsa entrepreneurial ecosystem, which has been rated one of the top cities in America for young entrepreneurs. Or, if you have a global vision, there are opportunities to study or work abroad and gain practical experience and build your network through international internships, bootcamps, and conferences. 

A biblical worldview is integrated throughout the entrepreneurship curriculum and programs with an emphasis on social entrepreneurship, kingdom business, and business as mission. You will be equipped as a Holy Spirit-empowered entrepreneur to think creatively and develop a vision to bring God’s healing to the marketplace and impact the world through business.
