Susan Marcus - Business Faculty - Marylhurst University“Business continues to move in the direction of incorporating values-based decisions into standard operating procedures. Today, corporate social responsibility is much less an “add on” than it is a basic component of an organization’s ethics. That is why many of our students come to Marylhurst for a rigorous experience in a values-based environment. When we provide that opportunity, students and faculty alike thrive. Our business programs at Marylhurst embrace and welcome students from all disciplines. We believe a diversity of backgrounds enriches the setting for everyone. We also have a very flexible schedule, offering classes evenings, weekends, and online including in an accelerated format – making a bachelor’s degree or an MBA that much more accessible and possible.”
