Strengthen your business

Businesses benefit when they provide employees with educational opportunities.

Partner with Columbia College and:

  • Boost productivity as workers are motivated by benefits such as continuing education
  • Increase your employees’ problem-solving, communication and critical thinking skills
  • Reduce turnover as employees stay when you invest in them
  • Recruit higher caliber candidates with competitive benefits such as educational opportunities
  • See potential tax breaks as the IRS allows employers to deduct funds spent on qualifying tuition reimbursement from their taxable income

Your employees will enjoy:

  • Truition® — no fees, no book costs, no surprises
  • Accelerated eight-week courses
  • Flexible online or evening classes
  • A degree from an accredited non-profit college

Our business development team is ready to partner with you to make higher education a reality for your employees.
