The Pacific University College of Business actively partners with businesses in our area. Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties are growing quickly and offer a wealth of opportunities to connect with a wide variety of businesses from small start-ups to well-established multi-national corporations.
We know that our students’ learning is richer and deeper when they have a chance to see the theories they are learning about in the classroom applied in a real-world setting, with real people and real constraints.
Our Corporate Landscape Tour is part of our effort to make sure that our students gain both theory and practice when it comes to business skills. On the tour, students and their faculty visit with executives, get to ask questions about the business and the executives’ experiences and get to tour the business operation. This provides an essential networking opportunity for our students.
Some of our recent tour destinations included Chaucer, Golden Valley Brewery, and Columbia Sportswear, and our partners are growing every day.
