Small Business Institute

The Small Business Institute (SBI) Program gives small business owners an opportunity to receive intensive management counseling from qualified business students working under expert faculty guidance.

SBI counseling studies focus on the full range of management problems and solutions, including market studies, accounting systems, personnel policies, production design, exporting, expansion feasibility and strategic planning. Also, SBI teams occasionally engage in community development projects.
