It's Our Business to Help You Succeed
Our instructors get to know you, and they empower you based on your unique abilities. They’ll work with you to handpick internships and opportunities because they’re invested in you and your ambitions.
Our courses are taught by faculty and experienced professionals, rather than teaching assistants. Learn from instructors who have worked in the field and bring real-world knowledge to the classroom. You'll also have opportunities to build your entrepreneurial and technical skills, work with industry leaders, and go after micro seed funding through the Center for Entrepreneurism, one of only six centers of its kind across the U.S.
Connect with South Carolina’s women-sourced, women-driven business organization headquartered right on campus. The Women’s Business Center of SC gives Columbia College students easy access to workshops, networking events, and volunteer opportunities. Not only will you have great resources while you're here, you’ll also leave campus with a network of business leaders excited to help you. Years after graduating, our alumnae are committed to the success of the college, its students, and women in business everywhere.
