University Partnerships

Oklahoma Baptist University

Oklahoma Baptist University and Citizen Potawatomi Nation signed a collaborative agreement to provide a corporate online MBA program for CPN members, employees and constituents.

Program participants are selected by CPN leadership and screened by OBU. The program is a cohort model, meaning all students go through the entire program together and are required to think critically in terms of how they can use what they learn to benefit Citizen Potawatomi Nation.

To accommodate working adults, the MBA is as flexible as possible. Course requirements, if preferred, can be completed in a unique 100-percent online environment where MBA candidates are immersed in a virtual reality company called Central Products. OBU faculty supervise, coach and collaborate with students as they participate (virtually) in the growth and development of the company. In addition, CPN assigns mentors from key tribal positions to help the students focus on various components of tribal management.
