Latest Sustainable Business Program Highlights

Date posted: January 28, 2014

Preparing students to understand, communicate, implement, and analyze sustainable practices in a business environment.

This month’s highlights:

BSUST 110, Communication for Sustainable Business Practices, is using a diverse range of media to promote and communicate for actual businesses.  One of this quarter’s clients is the Snoqualmie Sister Cities Association, whose mission is “to establish educational, cultural and economic relationships between the City of Snoqualmie, Washington, USA and the City of Gangjin, Republic of Korea in order to foster understanding, peace and prosperity between our two cities and in the world as part of a larger global effort.”  Students will utilize several media tools to increase awareness and participation in the student exchange program developed between the sister cities.  By working with the SSCA’s Board of Directors, which include the Mayor of Snoqualmie and the Superintendent of the Snoqualmie School District, students will develop real world experience and networking opportunities.
