Ryan Cortez Ryan Cortez


Ryan received an associate of arts degree in Business Administration from Norco College before transferring to California Baptist University to earn his bachelor's of science degree in Business Administration and master's degree. Ryan credits Norco College with giving him room to grow.

“Norco College absolutely influenced my career path. I originally started out as a history major. I wanted to go and teach high school and coach, however, I explored some different options here, took some business classes, and decided that a business was the way for me to go,” Ryan said. “One of the instructors that had the biggest impact on me was Professor Arend Flick. (He) really challenged me to think outside the box, put a whole entire new light on what critical thinking was and taught me some skills that I used all throughout my college career.”
