Why CBU?

It’s An Education that Brings Results.

With countless professional opportunities in one of the nation’s major cities, plus a highly personalized, small- university environment, it’s no wonder CBU graduates succeed.

More than 90 percent of our recent class was employed or attending graduate school within six months of graduation. In fact, more than 80 percent of them already had jobs or placement in graduate schools when they crossed the stage at graduation.

CBU is Excellence Made Personal.

There are no 300-seat auditorium classrooms at CBU. Our classes are small – averaging just 14 students. Here, you’ll know your professors, and they’ll know you. And these close relationships will help make possible exciting internships, research opportunities, and quality letters of reference when applying to graduate or professional school.

You Can Pursue Your Passion.

Whatever your interests, you’ll have every opportunity to pursue them at CBU. We offer a wide range of majors, minors, and concentrations to match your needs. Some of our most popular majors include Accounting, Biology, Biomedical Science, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Finance, Management Information Systems, Physics, Psychology — and there are many more!

It’s the Best of Both Worlds.

At CBU, you can have the best of both worlds. Here in a major city, you’ll find immense opportunities for internships, research, jobs and more. Along with these real-world experiences, you’ll thrive as part of an intimate learning community where you’ll study in small classes and know your professors and fellow students well.

It’s a Private Education Made Accessible.

CBU is committed to making our quality, private education affordable. With many options available – from scholarships and grants to loans and payment plans — we can help you, as we’ve helped so many others: Over 96 percent of our full-time students receive financial assistance, with an average award to each student of $15,808.

CBU Looks Like the Real World.

CBU is home to a remarkably diverse student population, creating an open, accepting community where all are made to feel welcome. Our university looks like the real world, and it is a diverse environment that makes for a stimulating college experience — filled with different perspectives and mutual respect.

It’s a Full College Experience.

At CBU, you’ll get involved — everyone does. The opportunities to participate, meet others, and make friends are endless — with a full calendar of activities and events, more than 40 student clubs, an active Greek life, exciting Buccaneers games, intramurals, concerts, movie nights, service projects and more – plus all that Memphis has to offer!
