The College of Business & Communication at Brenau University, with the ever-changing, rapidly evolving technological world, works hard to keep their business education “current, relevant, and top quality.” Having small class sizes gives students the advantage of personal attention from professors.

Student life outside of the classroom is just as crucial to the overall educational experience.

It provides on-line job boards, job fairs, a career library, and helps find internships. The Professional Development Week is an excellent resource that offers events, the Career and Internship Fair, meetings with local employers, and free professional advice about resumes, interviewing, professional dress, networking, business ethics, and more.
