MBA with CEO Apprenticeship
Oxford at Brenau believes in education innovations that deliver real-world results and jobs. A shining example is our MBA with CEO Apprenticeship program. As you complete your program with access to the Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs, you are also assigned to work side-by-side with a successful entrepreneur in your geographic area. This is not an internship. You will be assigned a paid placement and be mentored directly by the entrepreneur and company leadership as you see, feel, and learn what it takes to build an entrepreneurial culture that rewards high performance. If you want to build your own company or play a key leadership role in a thriving entrepreneurial venture, this program offers a customized education platform for your future success.

The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs
Oxford Entrepreneur MBAs become full members of the Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs, a program that cultivates a mentoring and funding environment among MBA students, business leaders, and private equity. Typically only accessible to established CEOs and business owners, this group gives students incomparable benefits that include access to CEO roundtable discussions and symposiums featuring preeminent entrepreneurs, high-level networking, and much more. Apprentice level membership also grants students access to the 30+ yearly Harvard Business School Club of Atlanta events, which are otherwise accessible exclusively to Harvard alumni and select top-tier business school graduates.
“Hard Knocks” Sessions
Forget just talking about business theory – with the “Hard Knocks” sessions, you’ll begin doing. These weekly sessions will give you real-world actions to help you build your network, skills, and confidence and systematize your growth. In addition, you’ll discuss current business issues and gain invaluable insight from battle-tested entrepreneurs.
“Go Global” International Experience
The “Go Global” experience takes you abroad to see how international entrepreneurs are competing in the global market. Meet with fast-growth entrepreneurs as well as other business leaders and even government officials to understand what it takes to succeed in any environment. This trip is not required for the program but is highly recommended and can count for 3 course credits, replacing one of the concentration classes. It will be offered multiple times throughout the year and last from 7-20 days depending on location and other variables.
Core MBA classes provide students the global knowledge to succeed in a large or small business environment, while the entrepreneur MBA concentration is best-in-class in educating students how to start a business and grow it to the next level. Academics are taken through “Chartered on-line” courses while real-world immersion takes place through Oxford Center activities. Learn more about our curriculum.
