Christopher Coryell - Diversity at Marylhurst

MBA Graduate Christopher Coryell describes the diversity of online students at Marylhurst University.


Marylhurst is a pretty small school and a pretty small area of Portland, however the online program especially opens up the ability to have a diverse pool of students from all over the country international. I was talking to students in every time zone, I was talking to students from other countries, people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures and we were all coming together and learning from each other.

It was especially rewarding when we got to some of our courses that dealt with globalization and international business because we actually had some students from out of country or had lived and done business in other countries they’re able to bring their experiences in and kind of share that anecdotal part of the course work with us.
