Price’s undergraduate program is designed to give students a competitive edge in the world of business. From relevant course material to unique opportunities, such as the Integrated Business Core Program, the B-school ensures that its students are job market-ready come graduation day.


Price undergraduates can choose from 12 majors including Accounting, Economics, Energy Management, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Healthcare Business, International Business, Management, Management Information Systems, Marketing, Sports Business, and Supply Chain Management. 

No matter what they choose to major in, Price students are given an education that challenges them to understand business from a real-world perspective.


One of the cornerstone programs at Price is the First Fidelity Bank Integrated Business Core (IBC) Program. Students in the First Fidelity Bank IBC program receive hands-on, real-world, experiential training in launching a successful business. The experience is truly end-to-end with students experiencing every aspect of business including accounting, financial analysis, market analysis and advertising, supply chain, website development and design, employee/employer relationships, and the business regulatory environment.

The IBC Program is a unique opportunity that helps differentiate Price because the experience is truly comprehensive. Students are exposed to every facet of launching and managing a business and go beyond simply understanding their chosen field or major. By the time they graduate, Price students are ready to not only excel in their own role, but are able to understand how other roles function within an organization as well. 

With the B-school’s relevant course material and strong opportunities to apply business knowledge, it makes sense why Price students are able to secure employment. Price does more than just teach its students business, it gives them a true competitive edge to excel in the business world. 

Alumni say: 

“For my capstone semester project, I was assigned a team and tasked with running an airline for the semester. Not only did I gain experience working closely with a team, but I learned how to brand a company and make it unique among competitors. These lessons have helped launch my career at a branding company and allowed my quick growth to a management position.”

“We were forced to take responsibility and ownership of an entirely fictitious company, which was definitely a little tedious & burdensome at the time BUT now I see how much of that translates to real life. It was important to me because it’s not just about the grades – I was given the opportunity to truly commit to entrepreneurship after learning what a life pursuing it would really look and feel like. Entrepreneurship is absolutely not for the faint of heart, but when you have a lifelong inspiring & motivating vision, entrepreneurship creates massive opportunities to create a life influenced by your dreams.”

“The Capstone project at Price was very comprehensive and well-rounded. It was sufficiently challenging, placed our degree in a global context and gave us ample opportunity to improve our verbal and written communication skills.”

“The Price College of Business offers many experiential learning experiences (our senior capstone projects, the opportunity to consult for the ICCEW group, on-campus incubators, etc.) but the most profound experiential learning opportunity that I took advantage of was the JCPenney Leadership Program. As an associate in the program, I gained access to a large group of alumni who were excited to help advance my professional growth. Through the Program’s Board Fellows program, I served as a member of the central Oklahoma branch of Catholic Charities, where I learned much about how to lead in a formal setting and I met influential members of the community who were invested in my growth.”

“I visited Costa Rica during an immersion program with the Price College of Business. We visited half a dozen different businesses – from touring the WalMart supply chain to visiting local start-ups and professional firms. The experience opened up horizons for me because I could imagine myself conducting business in an international setting and it grew my desire to work outside of the United States.”
