The Chesapeake Energy School of Business at Oklahoma Wesleyan University is a community of scholar-practitioners seeking one thing: excellence in business education. We seek to communicate effectively, think strategically, and lead with integrity. We’re getting better day by day, and we invite you to join us in the journey.


We’re striving to provide the best in business education so that our graduates are technically excellent, professionally qualified, ethically strong, and spiritually mature—and it is this spiritual maturity that forms the foundation for our program. Based on Biblical truth, our curriculum equips students to be witnesses for Christ in organizations across the world, be they for-profit, not-for-profit, governmental, or ministry related.

We are accountants and marketers, entrepreneurs and managers. We are business leaders and thoughtful communicators. We are lights in a dark world. Our dedicated faculty and wide selection of majors makes us one of the foundational pillars of OKWU, and we’re excited to continue growing in the years to come.


Oklahoma Wesleyan University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Accreditation Council for Business Education.
