SC Business Week Convenes Next Week

   
   

A sneak peak of the great activities planned on Presbyterian College’s campus July 13-18, 2014

For the past 30 years, Business Week has contributed to the preparation of young adults for the business environment by introducing them to the principles of leadership, teamwork and the American free enterprise system while promoting self-reliance, individual responsibility and entrepreneurship. During the week, teams of students develop mock companies, led by company advisors loaned from some of South Carolina’s most successful businesses. When the students are not working on their simulations, they are touring BMW, auditioning for a diverse talent show, sculpting business ideas with “junk,” making new friends and preparing for the end-of-the-week graduation ceremony. It’s an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the more than 200 students who are able attend at no cost.

There’s still room for you too! Sponsor a student today to ensure that this program continues another 30 years.

The Education Policy Fellowship Program wants to recruit you

The Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP) is a professional development program that provides emerging leaders with the knowledge and networks to impact a broad range of educational policy issues. The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce partners with the School Improvement Council on this program. The Chamber’s Robbie Barnett, associate vice president of workforce, education and manufacturing policy, serves as its chair.
