MU Launching Three New Business Degrees

Despite the challenges that 2020 presented to higher education, Multnomah University is persevering and discovering new ways to forge an education that prepares our graduates to thrive. We are expanding our Business program to include three new majors: Human Resources Management, Professional Sales, and Supply Chain Management & Logistics to provide additional degree options for our students at little cost to our institution.

The Multnomah University community sees this growth as a testament to God’s faithfulness to provide for us in these uncertain times. We are excited that more prospective students can enjoy the Multnomah experience than ever before through majors that match their career interests. We believe that our world needs Multnomah graduates in every field, industry, marketplace, and mission field to expand the Kingdom by serving Christ with their skills and loving their neighbors.

These programs offer the unique opportunity to combine the Multnomah experience with enhanced programs that deliver a small percentage of classes online through the Lower Cost Models for Independent Colleges Consortium (LCMC). The general education courses and the business core classes will be delivered on campus as a part of the residential, undergraduate business program at Multnomah.

The LCMC is increasingly popular in the private college landscape with 120 member institutions including many fellow CCCU (Council of Christian Colleges and Universities) schools. Companies like Google, Dell, WHO, IDGO, and many more have endorsed the LCMC curriculum related to their industries. Our partnership with the LCMC allows us to add three new majors with courses taught by the best national academic minds and industry leaders. This collaboration links us closer with other like-minded, smaller universities to provide the classic, small-college atmosphere that students love with innovative, skills-focused, career-minded programs.

Heather Lohmolder, Director of the Business Administration Program, commented, “I’m excited that our business students will now have more degree options and a wider variety of classes they can take to sharpen their skills. Our program offerings will nearly double with these new majors. Because of our partnership with the LCMC, I see the opportunity to continue adding cutting-edge majors, all based on a strong foundation of our current business program.”

Current business students will have the opportunity to join these new programs in the Spring 2021 semester and incoming students are welcome in the Fall 2021 semester. If you want to explore these new programs, please visit
