About the Meinders School of Business
One of the most important attributes of the Meinders School of Business is the faculty. Ninety percent hold doctorate degrees or the equivalent and regularly publish articles in professional journals. The average class size is less than 20 students. Individualized instruction and small classes ensure that each student receives encouragement and assistance.
A Broad View of Management
The Meinders School of Business is committed to providing quality business education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Curricula are designed to offer students a broad-based view of management: a view that emphasizes ethics, entrepreneurship, and social responsibility in the workplace; a view of management that will enable students to work effectively in the challenging global business environment. Course work features best business practices as well as theory and helps to provide students with the management skills necessary for effective leadership. Theoretical foundations are balanced by practical applications.
OCU is committed to making every effort to assist students who are seeking an education. Numerous merit and non-merit based scholarships are available through the MSB. Your admissions officer or advisor will be happy to discuss these options with you.
Herman Meinders, a university trustee and longtime benefactor of the university, provided OCU $18 million to build a new home for its business school. Completed in 2003, the 80,000-square-foot building serves as a learning and technology hub for the school.
In addition to classroom and office space, the three-story facility includes a 2,500-square-foot auditorium capable of hosting business conferences, a computer lab, a student/faculty lounge to facilitate collaboration and mentoring, and breakout rooms for small-group meetings. Business students have access to an on-site learning center where they can videotape then review mock interviews and presentations, as well as a career center where they will be able to take online self-assessment tests and get career planning help. State-of-the-art technology, including wireless Internet access and video conferencing facilities, will bring together students from around the world in "virtual" classroom environments.
