Entrepreneurship Program at SUNY Plattsburgh

Dream of owning your own business someday? Are you a risk taker? Want to make a difference in the business world?

"Entrepreneurs are the real heroes of our economy, the ones who risk it all to build their businesses." — J Matthews and J. Dennis in Lessons from the Edge Survival Stories for Starting and Growing a Company, 2003

Students who want to be entrepreneurs possess a greater desire to own their own businesses, invent new products and/or processes, or start up completely new enterprises. The skill set and knowledge required to achieve these goals are different from those required of Business, Marketing or Management graduates. This is a unique program with a different focus and a sufficient number of courses to stand on its own.

  • The entrepreneurship program at Plattsburgh State is the only 4-year Entrepreneurship degree program in the SUNY System! This, along with the School of Business and Economics' AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accreditation, provides a distinct competitive advantage for Plattsburgh graduates.
  • The entrepreneurship program is the newest business program at Plattsburgh, and the courses and experiential learning in this program make it distinct, unique, and very attractive for students.
  • The entrepreneurship program is affiliated with the (a) Small Business Development Center (SBDC) that provides unique opportunities for internships in entrepreneurship.
  • The entrepreneurship program benefits from the presence of the award-winning Students in Free Enterprise Chapter (SIFE) on our campus, which provides added value to this major.
