The Economics & Business Department sponsors two student clubs: Colorado College Investment Club (CCIC) and Women in Business (WIB). Read below for each group's mission statement and links to their pages, where you can find more information about meetings and membership.

Women in Business (WIB)

The purpose of Women in Business is to create an environment that encourages the development and empowerment of women in all business fields while promoting gender equity. 

Colorado College Investment Club (CCIC)

The Colorado College Investment Club (CCIC) seeks to provide students across the entire campus with the opportunity to learn more about investing. The purpose of the club is to give its members an opportunity to practice and use the tools gained from CC courses and professors. This real world application serves to strengthen and ingrain students' knowledge of economics, markets and finance. CCIC also seeks to educate its members as well.

Awards for Underclassmen
  • David Preston Memorial AwardEach October, department faculty select a few students who embody the qualities that former student and paraprofessor David Preston exuded – an enthusiasm for the study of economics and business, an eagerness to support the department and its students, a ready smile, and a deep love for Colorado College.  
  • Van Skilling AwardThe Van Skilling Awards were created at the request of David Van Diest Skilling, '55 for the purpose of supporting student research-based projects, with a strong preference for projects that support thesis or independent study. Applications for the Skilling Award are open year-round
Awards for Graduating Seniors

Seniors are encouraged to apply for the Van Skilling Award described above, especially if the award will aid their thesis research. Additionally, all students graduating with an Economics & Business Department major are eligible for multiple awards come the spring of their senior year.
