Description: 

This program of study is designed to prepare the recent high school graduate, vocational student, displaced worker, or individual who is re-entering the work force for a career as a small business owner. Over the next decade, much of the growth in the American economy will come from the start-up and growth of small business. Many ask whether entrepreneurship can truly be taught or whether it is an innate characteristic. Research has shown that entrepreneurship is a process and many aspects of entrepreneurship are learned behaviors. Alfred State will teach the student those skills and behavior patterns necessary to contribute to personal and business success. Courses in accounting, sales, advertising, management, small business operations, leadership and problem solving, as well as two courses in entrepreneurship will be taught in addition to the more traditional liberal arts and business courses.
