School of Business After Graduation

One constant in this frenetic business environment is the ability of the faculty members in the School of Business at CBU to steadily prepare our students to be ready for the uncertainty that surely lies ahead. With an emphasis on the analytical problem-solving skills needed to survive, grow, and succeed in the occupations of today and tomorrow, the School of Business strives to produce graduates who will be ethical employees, leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs.

Our highest priority is the proper development and preparation of our students at both a professional and ethical level. Our mission is to endow students with the critical thinking skills and ethical moorings essential to successful careers in a rapidly changing and technologically driven global business environment. We are committed to seeing that every student, to the maximum extent possible, attains his or her individual potential.

And, as the school dean has asserted: “Through the rigorous cultivation of internship opportunities for our students, the School of Business at CBU will maintain its excellent reputation of placing current students with Memphis area businesses. Our highly qualified graduates thrive in prominent positions in some of the most successful and prestigious companies in the area.” Below are just a few examples of companies our graduates have reported placement in by area of study.
