“In 2009, I entered the Accelerated Online MBA in Sustainable Business program. While physically, emotionally and intellectually challenging, the online venue forced me to adopt a learning curve that I have yet to discard. The opportunity to develop a discourse with other students located around the country provided insight that would not have been possible in on campus classrooms. The course topics were often taken from the headlines, so that not only were we on the cutting edge of educational style, but I was also learning from the research and synthesis of pertinent information. The professors were all active in their specialty areas, which provided me the confidence that the new skills that I was learning could be applied to the real world rather than just accumulating interesting theoretical knowledge.”

“Completing the Marylhurst AOP MBA program in Sustainable development has allowed me to actualize professional goals that I have set for myself. The growth in the sustainable development field is unprecedented, but I believe that additional education specific to sustainability is needed to succeed in such an arena; my Marylhurst education gave me that ability to succeed.”
