Prep for Success!

Develop a business plan. Meet your faculty. Tour a local business. Build your network.

Business Tours

We will divide up the incoming class by major. Each group of students will tour a business in the Oklahoma City metro. You’ll meet with an executive, who will introduce you to the company and industry, tell you about what they do, and provide you with insight as you embark on your business career.


Special Sessions

Throughout the Boot Camp, special sessions will give you the info you need to feel comfortable in OC’s College of Business Administration and to help you get a jump on your business career.

Course Credit

Students that attend CBA Boot Camp will earn one hour of credit and
will be able to use it in place of the required BUSA-1211 Introduction
to Business course. This saves the student from having to take a one
credit-hour course during the fall semester.


The Eagles Prey: Hands-on Business Project

To introduce you to various aspects of business, we’ll split into teams of 4-5 students. Teams will develop a plan to sell a product or service to members of the CBA community (i.e. students, faculty, staff, and alumni). Your product could be t-shirts, coffee mugs, pens, laptop cases, etc.

Teams will work with returning CBA students and faculty consultants to develop their business plan, then present it to a panel of venture capitalists - members of our Business Advisory Council who are local executives.

The panel will select one business plan to invest in. The winning team will then be charged with implementing its business plan during the upcoming semester. All profits will be shared between the winning team members and their investors (the venture capitalists).

This hands-on experience will give you the opportunity to learn about different aspects of business, develop strong relationships with other students, and maybe even make a little money!

Reserve your spot by emailing by August 7.
