Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SE), in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), established the Oklahoma Small Business Development Center Network (Oklahoma SBDC) in 1984. SE continues to serve as the lead university in a statewide consortium of private and public partners including the SBA, tribal nations, as well as many other entities and organizations including, chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and Main Street programs. Banks and commercial lenders across the state are also key supporters of Oklahoma SBDC.

Oklahoma SBDC is one of 62 SBDC programs existing in every state in the nation as well as in many U.S. territories. Similar entrepreneurial development programs in other countries have been modeled after the SBDC program in the United States.
