Henrique Ferreira Gehrke
Lourdes University Student
Success Story: Henrique is an international student from Blumenau, Brazil, and is a part of our volleyball team here at Lourdes. With his degree in Business Administration, Henrique hopes to someday work in a management position for a major corporation. His favorite part about Lourdes is the rich community that exists here. This is what he had to say about his transition from Brazil to Lourdes, "Coming from Brazil, I was worried that I would feel homesick, but the people here at Lourdes are very caring, and I definitely feel like I belong here."

Success Story: Membership & Events Assistant
Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce
B.S. Marketing- 2019

One of my favorite things about COBAL is that it upholds it’s motto. At first, being taught business as a noble profession was just something I heard my professors say. As time went on, I found myself becoming knowledgeable not only about course content but also developed a true desire to conduct business as a noble profession. Once I began my internship at the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce last summer, it quickly occurred to me that a position such as that is what “business as a noble profession” is all about. Serving the city I was born and raised in through business and community initiatives simply felt like the perfect combination of utilizing what I’ve gained through my courses in a meaningful and noble way. So, to be returning to the Chamber in a post grad position has made me very grateful to COBAL for instilling the concept of business as a noble profession.
