Small Business and Entrepreneurship Certificate
Small business is critical to the United States economy. Whether you want to open a traditional store-front, a home operation, an online venture, or simply learn the foundations of business, this certificate equips you with the knowledge and skills you need.
This certificate, developed in partnership with Project for Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education (PROVE), was designed in an effort to promote and expand small business opportunities for veterans throughout New York City. PROVE, founded in 2007, supports student veterans as they transition from military service to student life. Veterans who are interested in pursuing this certificate should contact our bursar, Milena Timerman, to learn more about using GI Bill benefits towards this program. This certificate is open to all interested participants, including non-veterans.
