The three-time Olympian captured the silver medal in men’s singles luge
at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, marking the first men’s
singles medal in U.S. history. Mazdzer is also a 2015 graduate of DeVry
University, earning his bachelor’s degree in business administration
with a concentration in finance.

Mazdzer is continuing his training and intends to compete for Team USA
in 2022, in what he hopes will be his fourth Olympic Winter Games (2010,
2014, 2018). At the same time, he is studying to become a certified
financial planner and planning to take the CFA exam next spring. His
goal is to combine financial planning with life coaching to help clients
achieve their personal goals and give back to others.

“We are honored to have DeVry’s own U.S. Olympian Chris Mazdzer on the
podium, once again,” said Amy King, group president at DeVry University,
“but this time, as our distinguished keynote speaker. Chris’ tenacity
and extraordinary achievement exemplify effort and perseverance;
qualities which DeVry University holds in high esteem and strives to
instill in our students and graduates.”

Olympic Committee. Since the partnership began in 2011, more than 375
U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and training hopefuls have enrolled
in a DeVry University certificate, associate, bachelor’s or master’s
degree program, including 103 graduates.
