We continue to see more online students, and last year began a new Executive MBA program with international students seeking a the EMBA students are seeking an MBA in IT. We are proud to be a part of the Ottawa University family that started in 1865, that became a pioneer in adult learning in the 1970s with OU’s Kansas adult focused campus opening in 1977, which now has more than 8,000 alumni, and most recently the launch of OU’s second residential campus in Surprise, Arizona in 2017. 

As Ottawa University alums, more opportunities are available to you than ever before. In addition to the regular events hosted at our Brookfield campus, you can now get further connected with our more than 2,500 alumni through our social media Facebook and LinkedIn pages. Watch for our Professional Growth Workshops, interviews for personal and professional growth, or volunteer to serve your alma mater at commencement or other events.

Your financial support is also impactful to the University and our students, as you can read more about on the Giving page. We know how much your degree or degrees have served your workplace advancement and hope you consider giving back to help others yield the same professional aspirations.

Please visit anytime and reach out to us whenever we can be of service. Our Alumni Board is proud to one of the first adult campuses with their own board, now in its 12th year!
