The University of Oklahoma Price College of Business Integrated Business Core (IBC) Program gives students hands-on, real-world training through partnership with First Fidelity Bank. From brainstorming and market analysis, to managing employees and the legal implications of business transactions, to selling products and closing the books on the last sale, IBC develops the skills it takes to launch a successful business. All profits go to local non-profit charities along with ‘sweat equity’ of up to 500 hours of community service each semester.

Cozie Okies, one of the 2018 student launched companies, is offering their Oklahoma Sooners Retro Schooner Woven Blanket created to make it easy for you to show off your Sooner spirit — 48″ x 60″ in dimension, fringe around the outside edges, crimson and cream in color and has a Sooner Schooner logo.

Cozie Okies is focused on enhancing charitable contributions and services and enriching the community while learning about the intricacies of managing and operating a business.  They will demonstrate their commitment through monetary donations and interactive service to 2 selected charities:  Center for Children and Families, Inc. (CCFI) in Norman, Oklahoma which provides a sanctuary for children and their families who have endured traumas such as abuse or neglect; The Curbside Chronicle, a nonprofit organization that helps homeless men and women
transition out of homelessness by providing them an income through magazine sales, and gives those employees a voice through inclusion of employee written articles.
