What is South Carolina Business Week?

How does the program work?

  • Students form mock companies of 10-12 students.
  • Student companies are led by Company Advisors and loaned executives from businesses across South Carolina.
  • Students attend workshops on all aspects of business and test newly-acquired knowledge in a computer business simulation game.
  • Using the game, students compete to make their company the most profitable through sound business decisions.

Who makes up the faculty?

  • 30-40 leaders in business, education and government share their special knowledge and skills with the students.
  • CEOs from some of South Carolina’s largest corporations provide the big picture.
  • Students hear from experts in entrepreneurship, diversity, communications, international business, management and research and development.

Is there some time for fun?

  • Students have time to use the recreational facilities at the college every day.
  • Planned activities, such as a pizza party, ice cream social, movie night and a talent show allow time to meet new friends from across South Carolina.

How much does it cost?

  • Because of the generous support of business sponsors from across South Carolina, the cost to attend Business Week is minimal for each student. Only a $75.00 application fee applies.
