What is a "cohort"?

A "cohort" is a group of students who begin their academic studies together and progress through the two years at the same rate taking the same classes as they go. They create their own learning community with resident and adjunct faculty from Oregon State University.

One great advantage to learning in a cohort is the network you establish with other professionals that will increase your mobility across organizational boundaries for employment opportunities and career growth.
