MBU Community Business Breakfasts

The Community Business Breakfast Series began with a local businessman seeking a place to gather to discuss relevant topics. This series provides local businesses, government officials, MBU faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to gain knowledge on current, relevant, and interesting topics in an inviting space. Additionally, it exposes MBU students to the surrounding business community.

Come and enjoy a delicious buffet-style breakfast while you network with fellow business professionals from the Watertown community and surrounding areas. Each breakfast features a guest speaker, compelling topics, and a brief introduction to MBU. Breakfast starts at 7 a.m. and the presentation starts at 7:30 a.m.

Sponsorship opportunities exist for these events. Contact the MBU Development Office at 920.206.2325 or development@mbu.edu for details.
