Not just a job

As a College Pro Entrepreneur, you’re not just an employee, you’re a business owner. You’re in charge of your own house painting or window cleaning business. And nothing compares to being the boss.

We’ll be real with you; running a College Pro business comes with both risks and rewards, and you’ll need to work hard to make your business successful. But you can count on our training program and ongoing support to help you through the successes and hard times. We will coach and mentor you every step of the way through our proven entrepreneurship program, often called a “Real World MBA.”

Develop new skills and build experience

Since 1971 College Pro has been providing exceptional leadership and management training to student and recent graduate entrepreneurs through real-world business experiences. A summer with College Pro won’t be like any summer you can remember – by running your own College Pro business you’re going to come away with hands-on experience that you can take with you into any future career.

You’ll master key business skills, work with customers, recruit employees, and manage schedules. You’ll also get to work with like-minded people, make connections, acquire new friends and mentors, and make memories you’ll have for the rest of your life.

How many summer opportunities can say that?

Run your first business

Our program offers you the flexibility and independence of owning your own small business combined with the support of an established organization. For those who want to start a business in the future, College Pro is a practical way to learn the ins and outs of entrepreneurship, business management, and leadership with a proven training and support program.

You’ll challenge yourself, grow your network, and learn all the skills necessary to be successful in
business, such as:

  • Leadership and management skills

  • Financial management
  • How to build effective teams

Stand out to future employers

How do you get a job without experience when you can’t get experience without a job? College Pro’s real-life business experience helps you develop the skills you’ll need to get ahead by complimenting your academic studies with practical experience.

Because future employers want to hire people who have a strong work ethic, take initiative, and have demonstrated their ability to adapt to changing situations, our entrepreneurs walk confidently into interviews knowing they have the experience that few, if any, of their peers have.
