Introducing the Professional Development Center at Marylhurst University's School of Business
Are you looking for continuing education to help you manage people better, to be more effective managing projects and processes, or to have more of a "business mind" in whatever field you work? If so, the new Professional Development Center at Marylhurst's School of Business is the place for you.
At the Professional Development Center, we offer noncredit, continuing education programs like our Mini-MBA and a list of professional development seminars for all working professionals. No admission to the university is required. Our courses are designed for people who want to quickly learn skills to help immediately on the job. There are no registration deadlines unless a class fills in advance. We also bring our highly practical courses and customized training directly onsite to workplaces throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Our courses are short and highly interactive, covering skills you need to advance in your career and be more productive and happy in the workplace. Instructors are seasoned professionals who bring their experience to class presentations and discussion. Their goal is to teach you knowledge and skills you can use right away at work.
Our students are working people of any age, or those between jobs — anyone looking to learn. Participants in any of our sessions earn continuing education contact hours, which are useful for qualifying for and renewing professional certifications of all kinds.
