The best experience! My time at Marylhurst for my undergrad, and my MBA, has been well worth every minute and penny.

I recently got a job as a Project Coordinator at Motor Control Engineering. Since I had no engineering background, my MBA was the key factor in their decision to hire me, sine I had the business perspective that they were looking for.

Christopher Coryell - Marylhurst MBABeing part of this Marylhurst MBA network is immensely powerful, as Christopher Coryell ’15 can attest:

“My initial interviews with Kaiser actually began via contact with a fellow Marylhurst alum who reached out on the Marylhurst Career Network on LinkedIn. I found resources through the alumni network and career services at Marylhurst well before my graduation date, and those connections are what led to me landing my current job.”  ~ Christopher Coryell, MBA, QMHA, Assistant Department Administrator for Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Kaiser Permanente
