Are you ready to unlock your inner entrepreneur?


At Golisano Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship, we believe everyone has the potential to be a business leader. Whether you’re a high school student, a young professional, or a parent looking to re-enter the workforce—our program can help you achieve your goals.


With hands-on learning, mentorship opportunities, and transferable classes, our program offers three post-graduation paths for our students. Here’s a look into each of them:


1. Enter the workforce

Whether you’re landing your first professional job, or moving to the next level in your career journey—entering the workforce is a great option for those looking to make an impact in an existing organization. Because our program prioritizes employer integration and project-based learning, you will have the chance to work with the business community from day one. By the time you graduate, you’ll be a high-quality, professionally prepared individual that stands out from the crowd.


2. Start your own business

The defining trait of our students is an entrepreneurial spirit. This path is an excellent option for those who are passionate about taking an idea and turning it into a successful venture. Organizations and mentors within our network are committed to working with students who are driven, resourceful, and ready to make their ideas happen. When you leave Golisano Institute, you won’t just be business-world ready—you’ll be ready to make your mark as an entrepreneur.


3. Continue your education.

For many of our students, finishing their bachelor’s degree may be the best course of action. Our courses are designed to be transferable, allowing you to seamlessly transition to a bachelor’s program if that’s your goal. Armed with the skills, knowledge, and relationships you built at Golisano Institute, you will be well-prepared to continue your education journey with focus and intention.


No matter which path you choose, you will complete a capstone project that solves a real-world business problem. In your eighth quarter, you’ll work with a faculty mentor and real-world organization to tackle a challenge and find a solution. This hands-on experience is invaluable, and it’s just one more way that our program sets you up for success.


At Golisano Institute, we’re here to support you every step of the way. So, how will you make your mark? It all starts with the knowledge and tools you’ll gain through our program. Come with the passion, leave with the skills, and get ready to take the business world by storm.
