“I came to small business management program at OCCC at a desperate time seeking professional business counseling and I came away with so much more! I made lifelong friendships. One the greatest accents to the program is the insight to the coastal business dynamic. Monthly one on one counseling sessions provided excellent feedback and resources which paved an avenue for success. The greatest selling point for this program is the structure of the curriculum and experience of the teachers and advisors, the convenience and access to local and statewide business professionals, and the small class sizes for great interpersonal communication. ” — Tyler T., SBM Graduate, Spring 2016
