Corporate Relations

Oklahoma City University’s Office of Corporate Relations connects the philanthropic interests of our corporate partners with strategic priorities on our campus that result in mutually beneficial relationships and outcomes.

Why should your company become an OCU Corporate Partner?

Becoming a Corporate Partner at OCU means you’ll have the opportunity to create real value for your employees and your company. What is the partnership all about? For companies that provide tuition assistance to their employees, OCU will waive General University Fees ($465 per course) and allow students to defer payment until tuition assistance has been dispersed by the employer.

As a Corporate Partner, you can offer your employees the chance to earn a prestigious OCU degree at a reduced rate. Why is this a good thing?

  • Education benefits can aid in recruitment of talented employees.
  • Tuition reimbursement programs can increase employee retention and reduce costs associated with turnover.
  • A more educated workforce is a more productive and dynamic workforce.

What’s more, a growing number of employees say that learning and development is a company’s most important policy. Becoming an OCU Corporate Partner allows you to deliver what your employees are asking for, while giving your workers an opportunity to select a degree from a wide field of studies.
