In December 2014, Eric Vela was hired by Oregon Health Sciences University to help lead a $28 million vaccine program that aims to eliminate HIV from humans. Even though he had 16 years of experience in infectious disease research, Eric needed to enhance his skills as a leader and project manager. So he turned to Oregon State to pursue an MBA in Organizational Leadership, a program that combines online course work with in-person classes in Portland.
Oregon State’s MBA in Organizational Leadership program provides an engaging, hybrid learning experience where students conduct the majority of the course work online through OSU Ecampus, and they also have the benefit of collaborating with classmates in face-to-face meetings. Yuriy Mikitchenko, a recent graduate of the program, speaks to the value of learning from others in the MBA cohort.
Yuriy Mikitchenko didn’t want to put his promising career on hold in order to pursue his MBA, and Oregon State University made it so that he didn’t have to. OSU’s MBA in Organizational Leadership is a hybrid program that is designed for working professionals, combining the flexibility of online learning with valuable face-to-face, evening classes in Portland
