University of Portland offers new location for Pamplin School of Business Westside Campus

The University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business has moved to a new location for its Westside Campus, which begins its second year of classes this summer. Classes will be held in Bethany, off of the Sunset Highway and west of Beaverton. The first session is from May 12-June 19, the second from June 23-July 31.

Students attending classes at the Westside Campus can earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, with concentrations in either operations & technology management or in finance.

The new campus features a group meeting area, Bloomberg terminals on site, and free parking. It is walking distance to local restaurants and cafes, close to prominent Portland businesses and features a secure access for students.

“We are very excited about offering graduate business programs in our new Westside campus site,” said Robin Anderson, dean of the Pamplin School of Business. “It offers the same quality, classroom experience and committed faculty University of Portland is known for, now with the convenience of being close to work and home.”

The first session features two courses – Applied Financial & Economic Forecasting Methods, taught by Bahram Adrangi, and Operations Management, taught by Mike Eom. A second session offers two courses, Security and Portfolio Analysis, taught by Rich Gritta, and Sports Marketing, taught by Alison Sarantakos.

Sarantakos is an adjunct professor who has over 13 years of marketing experience in both sporting goods and high-tech industries including Nike and Hewlett-Packard. Adrangi, Eom and Gritta are all professors of the University’s Pamplin School of Business.

The University of Portland is an independently governed Catholic university guided by the Congregation of Holy Cross. U.S. News & World Report ranks the institution as one of the top ten regional universities in the West. It is the only school in Oregon to offer a College of Arts & Sciences, a graduate school, and nationally accredited programs in the schools of business, education, engineering, and nursing.
