Company Spotlights

Company Spotlights are designed to provide our students a chance to learn about various organizations and available job or internship openings.

Held both virtually and in-person, Company Spotlights can be the door to a future career for our students.

MBA & MSA Mentoring Programs

Are you ready to give back and share your professional experiences and lessons learned with the next generation?

We’re seeking business professionals to serve as mentors to MBA & MSA students during the 2023-2024 academic year.

These discussions will allow mentors and students to engage in meaningful conversations about the business landscape.

  • Mentors must have at least 10 years of professional experience.
  • Mentors should be college graduates, but do not need to have a graduate degree. Alumni from any college or university are welcome to apply.

Sponsor a Signature Event

There is more than one way to get involved with the UNCG Bryan School. If becoming a partner isn’t the right fit for your organization at this time, you may also consider sponsoring one of our signature events during the upcoming Fall 2024 semester. We are currently accepting sponsorships for both our semester kickoff party, Back 2 Business, as well as our daylong Bryan School Professional Development Conference mid-semester, which culminates with a networking mixer attended by hundreds of our students. Sponsorship at any level will put your organization front and center to the region’s most exceptional future business leaders. To learn more about this first-come, first-serve opportunity, use the links below and get details about each event as well as their available sponsorship packages:
