Home to business education

and a welcoming community
With an eye for serving students, Oklahoma State University opened a new, state-of-the-art $72 million Business Building in 2018. Unique in amenities, design and shape, the “Crescent Masterpiece” brought all of Spears Business together, for now, and the future where students have the opportunity to learn, grow and collaborate.
For more than a century, business education at OSU has produced impactful leaders making positive differences in small and large companies, in local, state and national governments and in colleges and universities in the U.S. and around the world.

A century of learning

Honoring those who led the way
In 2014, the Spears School of Business celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding as the School of Commerce and Marketing at Oklahoma A&M College. The celebration included a momentous project featuring tributes to 100 of the school’s most distinguished graduates, many of whom returned to Stillwater that year for a grand banquet to celebrate a century of success stories.
