The Briner School of Business, named after alumnus Bob Briner ’56, draws inspiration from Briner’s belief that following Christ holds relevant solutions for every business challenge. Faith fueled Briner’s pioneering work in sports management and as Sports Emmy Award-winning producer and continues to fuel students who study his approach as part of GC’s business management curriculum. The Briner School of Business currently offers two graduate and five undergraduate programs. Graduate programs include a Master of Science in Management and a Master of Business Administration with tracks in General Management, Human Resource Management and Non-Profit management. Undergraduate programs include an adult undergraduate degree in Business Administration and traditional undergraduate degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Marketing, Music Business, and Sport Management.

“The Briner School of Business will enable us to extend our heritage and expand our reach as we continue to engage our culture and shape our world,” shares Greenville College President, Dr. Ivan Filby.
