South Carolina Small Business Development Centers

The South Carolina Small Business Development Centers and Professor Wolfgang Messner of the Darla Moore School of Business recently collaborated to assist South Carolina companies while creating applied learning opportunities for students enrolled in the school’s Global Competitive Analysis course. “The SC SBDC is fundamental to the selection process. We identify clients who have expressed a strong interest in expanding their business footprint and pair them with a student team that will assess their capacity to compete globally.” For 17 weeks, eight teams of undergraduate and postgraduate international business students work alongside SC SBDC business consultants to engage the client, analyze the company’s industry landscape, conduct a market analysis, develop an implementation plan and deliver recommendations via a formal presentation. “The curriculum transcends book learning and classroom lectures with practical, real-world experience. During these consulting projects, students gain first-hand experience in analyzing a bona fide business challenge and recommending innovative, value-added solutions to the client company.” In addition to examining the global business environment, student teams spoke with U.S. and foreign regulatory agencies, developed market entry strategies and created international marketing plans.
