Columbia College recognizes the global effects of an ever-changing economy. With the tail end of a recession happening in the U.S., an increased demand on natural resources in the world, and the earth changing rotation on its axis, causing a multiple of natural disasters: the gap between the poor and the wealthy has grown tremendously. Still, the number of billionaires in the U.S. far exceeds that of any country in the world and the U.S. still remains the richest country, despite its import debt.
We, at Columbia College, decided that we could contribute to the change in the global gap, by efficiently training our students to work in fields that are not only hiring, but fields that are necessary because the demand for employees far exceeds the supply of them.
Our list of programs offered increases according to those numbers, to not only for our job-placement rate, but to increase the successes of former students, one person at a time. We aim to please, and strive for recognition and reliability. And since Columbia College is a fairly small college, we can do nothing more than put our students first in doing so.
