Marylhurst University

The Portland Business Journal has ranked Marylhurst’s MBA program #1 in the Portland area.  With a hybrid on-campus and online format, the college offers maximum convenience for working professionals seeking to earn an MBA in as little as 18 months.  The Marylhurst MBA has an amazing selection of academic concentrations to choose from for a small, private college.  Students choose to focus in Management, Finance, Non-Profit Management, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, or Health Care Management.  The GMAT exam may be waived for admission to Marylhurst.
  Additionally, foundation coursework is not required to enter the program, which is another big convenience for busy professionals seeking an MBA.  As Oregon’s oldest Catholic college, founded in 1893, Marylhurst has much credibility within the area.  For these reasons, the Marylhurst MBA has been popular among professionals in real estate, insurance, health care administration and more for decades.

The Life:  Marylhurst is located on the west bank of the Willamette River between the tony Portland suburbs of Lake Oswego and West Linn, making it a convenient location for many professionals and commuters.  Small class sizes and a picturesque little campus give the program an intimate feel. 

Drawbacks:  Marylhurst’s business program is not AACSB accredited, which can limit its market value with large, global corporations.  For many years, the Marylhurst MBA was known as one of the best bargains in the Portland area, but more recently costs of the program have crept up closer to some of the larger programs in the area.
