The Consulting and Business Development Center takes business education out of the classroom and puts it to work in communities across Washington.
Through the center’s programs, students build skills and gain experience in consulting and solving business challenges. The students provide valuable consulting to small businesses and non-profit organizations in underserved communities. Business owners and non-profit leaders gain access to business education that creates jobs and changes lives.
Combining academic rigor with business relevance and job creation is a bottom-line proposition that has resulted in more than $90 million in new revenue generated and more than 10,000 jobs created and retained across Washington state since the center was founded in 1995.
