“Portland’s innovative capacity is key to economic growth throughout our state. Oregon State University students and faculty contribute to this economic success through their work with industry partners and by creating and accelerating the impact of innovation.”
-Edward J. Ray | President, Oregon State University
The success of any industry relies on sound business acumen by leaders who work hard and are results-driven. With degrees in business analytics, innovation management, supply chain, marketing, finance, accounting and other fields, the College of Business is preparing graduates to address business challenges and lead by example. In addition to being a recruiting pipeline for Portland-area companies, the college partners with industry through industry-defined student projects, faculty research, executive education and student internships. Companies can also work with the college to develop customized MBA and graduate certificate programs that meet their needs.
The College of Education has launched an innovative partnership with the Beaverton School District that gives future teachers hands-on classroom experience from day one. Informally known as Teach for Beaverton, the two-year Master of Arts in Teaching program teams student teachers with seasoned professionals in K-5 schools while they complete in-person and online course work through Oregon State Ecampus. As one of Oregon’s most diverse cities with more than 90 languages spoken in local schools, Beaverton offers teachers an ideal environment to interact with students from wide-ranging backgrounds.
Students in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences — the only accredited college of its kind in Oregon — work to advance science to inform the systems that create health solutions for individuals, families and communities. Additionally, the College of Pharmacy conducts research and development for cancer and infectious disease therapies as well as other critical health concerns at the Collaborative Life Sciences Building in Portland.
