An entrepreneur is a person who takes on an idea and makes it grow - a person who assumes the responsibility and risk for a business operation with the expectation of making a profit. This involves decisions about the product, acquiring the facilities and bringing together the labor force, capital and production materials to make things happen
Columbia College's Entrepreneurship Program can help provide the important background and training to help you become a successful entrepreneur. You'll discover the steps to create a business plan, obtain financing and market your product line, along with other ideas to start your own business.
Entrepreneurship training at the college will be offered within several of the vocational education programs. Its time-tested principles apply whether you are majoring in culinary arts, child development, automotive technology, welding technology, computer science, or business administration. In addition, credits from some of the courses will be accepted as transfer courses by California State University, Fresno.
Students can also develop valuable networking skills by joining the college's CEO Club (Collegiate Entrepreneurship Organization). Through the CEO Club, members can network worldwide with other CEO Clubs in other countries and access valuable information on financing, patents, marketing, and more.
