University of Oregon scores graduate degree program over PSU objections

The University of Oregon has permission to start a new master's degree program in Portland but may have opened a deep wound with Portland State in the process.
The state Higher Education Coordinating Commission on Thursday approved UO's application to start a Master of Science in Sports Product Management. The program, long sought by the region's sports products companies, will enroll students this fall.
But before the commission's 6-2 vote in Salem, PSU President Wim Wiewel delivered a fusillade of criticism at the program. He accused UO of failing to collaborate with PSU on the curriculum and made clear his dissatisfaction with any other state higher education institution infringing on PSU's turf.
