College of Charleston MBA Program announces new partnership with Lowcountry Local FirstApril 14, 2023
The College of Charleston’s nationally ranked MBA program and Lowcountry Local First, a local nonprofit with a mission to advocate the benefits of a strong local economy by strengthening community support of local independent businesses, will work together in a newly established partnership.
In this new collaboration, the Business as a Force for Good Speaker Series, presented by the College of Charleston MBA program, will be recorded in front of a live audience. Each interview serves as an opportunity for audience members to do a deeper dive with presenters from previous Good Business Summits. The Good Business Summit is an annual one-day event hosted by Lowcountry Local First that spotlights ideas and workable solutions for building companies with profit and purpose.
Each event will be recorded live by Ohm Radio 96.3FM, rebroadcast on the radio and available as a Small Talks, Big Ideas with Steve Fletcher podcast episode on all major streaming platforms.
As part of the partnership, current College of Charleston MBA candidates will become educational members of Lowcountry Local First, giving them access to many of the benefits the organization offers. Additionally, students will get to interact closely with local entrepreneurs in the classroom.
