CBU upholds a Lasallian tradition that has flourished for more than 300 years worldwide — and since 1871 as the first college in the city of Memphis. Lasallian teaching focuses on touching hearts and educating minds, preparing our students for the real world — for life, work, and service to society.
CBU is consistently ranked among the best universities in the South and the nation, singled out because of its affordability and return on investment as a educational “Best Value.” By combining its historical emphasis on providing practical, real-world experience with the most contemporary innovations in teaching, technology, and scholarship, CBU is uniquely positioned to transform the Mid-South’s 21st-century professional workforce.
The same emphases that define CBU’s undergraduate program — critical thinking, hands-on experience, and ethical context — carry through in its master’s-level programs. CBU is absolutely dedicated to your success — personal and professional. In step with our Lasallian tradition, we strive to provide you with individual attention as you pursue a practical, real-world education that will improve the quality of life for you and your family. We believe that when we help you transform your professional life, we empower you to want to build a better community and a better society.
