Unique Small Business Program Offered at SCC

 

Albemarle, NC – Stanly Community College (SCC) is offering a unique program for individuals interested in starting or expanding their own small businesses. Participants in this hands-on course identify and develop necessary business skills, scan the community for small business opportunities, and prepare a business plan that includes a marketing plan and financial projections.

SCC Business Administration Program Head Lorie Narolewski will teach the course. “BUS 280 REAL Small Business will be an interactive experience for students,” said Narolewski. “I earned my REAL (Rural Entrepreneurship through Action Learning) Certification and through the process saw firsthand the benefits of this course for individuals who want to own a small business. Rather than a traditional lecture, students take the lead in learning the material through the experiential learning cycle.”

The course will begin on October 17, meeting Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:50 pm at the Crutchfield Education Center in Locust. For more information contact Lorie Narolewski at 704-991-0353 or lnarolewski4068@stanly.edu.
