Why do I need an MBA in Oklahoma?

Oklahoma has always been a player in the oil and natural gas industry.  It remains Texas’ junior partner in this market: among its major employers are Madellan Midstream Partners and Williams Gas Pipelines in Tulsa and Conoco Phillips north of Oklahoma City. The energy markets are a great career choice for graduates of MBA programs in Oklahoma who are comfortable in a politically charged industry.

There are also major tire manufacturers in Oklahoma, which include Goodyear Tire & Rubber in Lawton; Michelin North America in Ardmore and  Bridgestone Firestone in Oklahoma City. Both maintain large manufacturing and distribution facilities and both are opportunities for the Oklahoma MBA to break into distribution oversight and operations management. Skills that an MBA brings to the business are understanding organizational function and how to extract maximum efficiency from a diverse labor pool.

Five of the top fifteen employers in Oklahoma are health care providers or insurers, based for the most part in Oklahoma City. Wherever there are major health facilities there is a need for administrative support. Health care administration requires the specialized knowledge Oklahoma MBA programs provide such as the ability to engage in managerial accounting and in successfully managing personnel conflicts and negotiations.
