WSU Vancouver’s Business Growth MAP helps local small businesses and entrepreneurs succeed while providing educational opportunities for Carson College of Business students. The program is comprised of a pro-bono student consultancy, a monthly small business forum, and an educational course for small business owners.
Business Growth MAP is cultivating the next generation of business leaders. With 93% of WSU Vancouver students staying in the region, the program is placing experienced graduates into the local economy.
