Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University


The Chesapeake Energy Business Student Success Center believes in a holistic approach to advising, beginning with prospective students, like you, who are interested in programs through Spears Business. This means that after admission to OSU, you will be assigned an academic advisor who is eager to motivate, encourage and support you during your time as an OSU student. We explore majors and career options, create an academic plan of action, guide you toward university resources, and serve as a mentor and an advocate.
