Entrepreneurship class debuts at SUNY Cortland

By Kevin Tampone


CORTLAND — The State University of New York (SUNY) Cortland is launching a new course in entrepreneurship this fall.

The three-credit course is open to students from all majors. Students will research local establishments to determine the business needs and interests, according to the university.

The long-term goal is for students to pitch business ideas to investors after a second course in the spring.

“It’s kind of a twofold thing,” Kathleen Burke, associate professor of economics, said in a news release. “On the academic side, we’ll have our students trying to develop their own business ideas using the know-how of successful local businesses and people in the community. Then, within the community, we’ll use the talents of our students to assist small, growing businesses.”
