Having worked hard to receive new accreditation, Morris Brown College has been working hard to come back with a boom. Part of that revival has included in selecting new leadership, such as a new Provost And Senior VP of Academic Affairs. The other part is the commitment to bolstering up its academic offerings. Now, a new partnership with Edible is allowing Morris Brown College to return in full force with a new hospitality program! Get the full story from the recent release by Morris Brown College below.
Edible® has teamed up with Morris Brown College, a private and coeducational liberal arts college engaged in teaching and public service with special focus in leadership, management, entrepreneurship and technology, as the company commits to providing direct training and job opportunities for its hospitality and global business management students.
Dr. Kevin James, President of Morris Brown College said, “We are thrilled to continue to grow our hospitality program partners by working with companies that will provide direct experiential learning opportunities to our students. I look forward to Morris Brown being a direct pipeline of diverse leadership within the career fields of hospitality and organizational leadership for Edible Arrangements and other prominent hospitality organizations in Atlanta. Edible’s headquarters is located in Atlanta, so this partnership strengthens my goal for Morris Brown to become one of the top institutions in the country for Black and Brown people to learn how to own, operate, lead, and manage franchises, restaurants, and hotels.”
Cheikh Mboup, Edible Arrangements President and COO said, “Edible is excited to work with Morris Brown College in the continued mentorship of the school’s hospitality and organizational management students. Through internship opportunities, hands-on training, and Edible leadership seminars, we look forward to playing a part in setting these individuals up for success as the next generation of business leaders in the local Atlanta community and beyond. Moreover, we hope to foster their entrepreneurial spirits by helping students learn more about franchise ownership opportunities post-graduation.”
