Each year the College of Business is a gold level sponsor of The Portland Business Journal’s “Oregon's Most Admired Companies” event, which is held in December. This strategic sponsorship is important to the College of Business as it is a key way to support the Portland business community, which includes our alumni, corporate and business partners, and companies who invest in the college, the university and our students. 


We congratulate the companies and executives that are recognized each year and thank them for hiring our graduates. We are also proud that many of the CEO’s who are recognized are Oregon State University and/or College of Business alumni and thank all of the companies for helping us prepare our students for their careers and also for hiring our students as interns and as employees. 


The most admired list is compiled from surveying more than 3,000 CEOs across the state and southwest Washington.
