VANCOUVER, Wash. – Washington State University Vancouver (WSUV) is setting out the welcome mat to area businesses as it prepares for year two of its Business Growth Mentor and Analysis Program (BGMAP).
 
The program provides College of Business students with the opportunity to integrate classroom knowledge, gain consulting skills and develop project management experience while assisting local small businesses. In the process, BGMAP provides business owner and/or management teams with high-level consulting services to help them grow their companies and create jobs for the community.
 
Ten different organizations have signed up to participate in the program this fall, according to Lucia Worthington, BGMAP manager. Seven are for-profit businesses and three are nonprofits.
 
“It’s nice to have a number of different companies because it makes it more interesting for the students,” said Worthington, who is in her first year as manager of the program.
