Oregon State University Summer Session

Spring (or do a cartwheel) into summer

Summer term at Oregon State is only 11 days away. That's the best news of the year. And it leaves you with plenty of time to register for the summer classes that will help you graduate sooner.

OSU Summer Session offers nearly 500 graduate-level classes in over 80 subjects, and courses last anywhere from one week to 11 weeks. An added perk: everyone pays in-state tuition in summer.

If you're leaving Corvallis until fall, don't forget that Oregon State Ecampus delivers nearly 100 courses online, so you can study wherever you go.

The Business of Water  

Course feature: WRP 599 - The Business of Water

A transdisciplinary approach to education in water resources needs to include training in business skills such as those offered in graduate programs such as an MBA. This course, taught by Todd Jarvis, Ph.D., provides exactly that.

The global water services industry is slated to approach $1 trillion in annual revenues by 2020 according to Bank of America, and the World Economic Forum says the global water crisis is the most serious threat to business and society. In this class we'll learn about the business of water and current trends in the corporate sector.

WRP 599 runs Aug. 17-Sept. 4 Register now.
