Additional Information

Overview

Our full-time business professors have Master's Degrees or business and industry equivalent, and the majority of them have been teaching for at least 8 years.

Welcome to our website. We are dedicated to providing the tools, skills, and knowledge that will assist you in being successful whether you choose to go to work, continue your education, obtain experience for certification, upgrade your existing skills, or take a class for personal growth and enjoyment.

Our full-time business professors are here to provide quality business educational programs to the community as conveniently and economically as possible.

The Associate in Science in Business degree (the transfer degree) is designed to ease the transition between two-year and four-year colleges. In the BIT Division, we offer two AS degrees: The College of Business option and Emergency Management. Many colleges and universities accept the courses to satisfy the first two years of a four-year degree in a college of business.

The Associate in Applied Science degrees (non-transfer) are designed to prepare the student for employment immediately after graduation. Choices of non-transfer degrees include Accounting, Business Administration (various options), Computer Programming, Database Development, Multimedia Graphic Design, Paralegal Studies, Digital Forensics, and CyberSecurity.

The Division has eleven classrooms equipped with computers utilizing a variety of software programs and applications. We are making progress in the accommodation of visually impaired students by providing large monitors for some PCs. Most professors in lecture classes utilize software applications (PowerPoint, Access, and Excel) to enhance the learning environment. Additionally, our two dedicated networking labs are equipped with current computers and various operating systems to include Windows, MacOS, and Linux. These labs are also configured in such a way to allow immediate transition from one operating system to another. Our remaining classrooms are carpeted and furnished with comfortable chairs and tables rather than school desks to provide an atmosphere more conducive to learning.

Our Division has transfer articulation agreements in place with the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) in Business Administration (various degree options), Oklahoma State University - Okmulgee (OSU) in Information Assurance and Forensics, Park University in Management and Computer Information Systems, and with Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SEOSU) in Business Administration (various degree options), Computer Information Systems, and Occupational Safety and Health. In all of the above-mentioned working relationships we are providing our students with a 2+2 Baccalaureate Degree program while continuing to remain on the Rose State College campus. It is highly recommended that a student look at the agreements on the RSC website by clicking on the ARTICULATION (TRANSFER) AGREEMENTS link under ACADEMIC OUTREACH, or talk with the division Academic Advisor, before making any transfer degree decisions. In addition, The Business and Information Technology Division has 2 + 2 transfer articulation agreements with the University of Oklahoma College of Professional and Continuing Studies in OU’s areas of Administrative Leadership and Liberal Studies with our degree programs in Business Administration and Computer Information Technology. Also, there are 2 + 2 transfer articulation agreements with OU’s College of PACS in the areas of Criminal Justice and Administrative Leadership with the degree programs of Cyber Security, Digital Forensics, Emergency Management, and Paralegal Studies offered here in the BIT Division. For more details, a student can look at the ARTICULATION (TRANSFER) AGREEMENTS link under ACADEMIC OUTREACH on the RSC website.

Students may choose from many student organizations. Business professors sponsor two student organizations: The Paralegal Club and the CyberSecurity Club.

We invite you to come to our division to investigate the possibility of becoming a student of Business & Information Technology whether seeking a degree or just updating your skill sets.

Advisory Councils

The Mission of Rose State College is to provide a wide range of lower division, higher education programs to fulfill the educational and occupational training needs within its service area.

To aid us in meeting our mission objectives, we actively participate in the advisory team concept. The College encourages the involvement of community representatives in recommending technical program training needs as well as existing program curricula updating. It is the policy of Rose State College that each of the technical programs, and certain designated university parallel programs have advisory committees that meet at least once each year to review each program's curricula as it relates to the needs of students and employers.

The technical program advisory committees are composed of at least seven individuals from outside the College who are chosen from segments of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area to collectively advise the College regarding development and/or operation of a particular program.

The advisory committees are composed of individuals with special expertise, leadership, and an interest in improving industry-education cooperation. Rose State College's commitment to education excellence depends on advisory committee members who are willing to share their technical expertise, their knowledge, and interest in serving one of the most important components in the community--schools and their students.
