Oklahoma university to launch commercial space certificate

One of Oklahoma’s two research universities is launching a new graduate certificate program that will catapult students into the field of commercial space.

Students with the University of Oklahoma’s Price College of Business will be able to apply to the school’s Commercial Space Applications certificate for the spring 2024 semester. Applicants must have bachelor’s degrees before they can take classes.

The 12-hour hybrid program will offer four classes online and two in-person, including a weeklong international experience at Politecnico di Milano in Milan, Italy.

Shad Satterthwaite, director of executive business programs in aerospace and defense at the business school, said the addition contributes to the mission of the university.

“In Oklahoma, aerospace and Defense is the second largest economic sector,” Satterhwaite said. “We’re an energy state, and I think we always will be, but the fastest-growing and second largest is aerospace and defense.”
