Breech Business Week

Breech Business Week provides students with an opportunity to engage in activities directly related to career preparation. Serving as one more way we help our students be job ready, the week will include business networking opportunities, as well as resume and social networking workshops designed to heighten their attention to professional presentation. Drury students receive valuable insights and feedback from these connections while business leaders share their experiences and learn what makes Drury graduates highly valued employees. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available for your company. Join us at Breech Business Week and see the “Drury Difference.”
