Marylhurst business program alums are just like you: busy people with productive lives who wanted more than a degree — they wanted practical skills and insightful knowledge to help them grow both professionally and personally.
Take Gerry Ewing. Gerry, a longtime editor at The Oregonian newspaper, completed his bachelor's degree in business and leadership from Marylhurst in 2010. Soon after, he landed a job as the director of corporate communications at Tuality Healthcare in Washington County, Oregon.
Or Laurey Maslyk, who completed both her undergraduate and graduate business degrees at Marylhurst, and in 2010 was named executive director of Remodeling for Independence Together, a non-profit organization that retrofits homes for low-income elderly and disabled people who want to keep living independently.
Whether you want to change your own life or the lives of others, our business program can help you find that new path.
