THE FIELD CENTER IS FOR STUDENTS
We help students and NYC entrepreneurs start and run their own businesses through one-on-one business advising, workshops, competitions and events. We are also the main outreach arm for CUNY students through our partnerships with CUNY Startups (formerly the CUNY Center for Student Entrepreneurship) and the Baruch Small Business Development Center.

Studying Entrepreneurship at Baruch College
The Lawrence N. Field Program in Entrepreneurship uses a unique and comprehensive model for entrepreneurship that brings together faculty, staff, students, consultants, practitioners and entrepreneurs to provide educational programs, services and conduct and disseminate research. The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazine have ranked Baruch College’s Entrepreneurship program among the Top 25 undergraduate Entrepreneurship programs in the United States. The Field Programs in Entrepreneurship also have internationally recognized research, nationally ranked graduate academic programs and degrees.
The Field Fellowship Program at the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship provides valuable professional development experience for students alongside a rigorous academic program at the Zicklin School of Business. Undergraduate and graduate Field Fellows work alongside business development counselors and faculty in serving approximately 1200 Small Business Development Center clients annually. They provide technical support services including assistance in developing business and marketing plans; evaluating and selecting funding alternatives, accounting systems and technology; supervising employees; and studying the implications of business decisions. In addition to client work, interns may be involved with other Center projects involving research and business analysis.
Entrepreneurship Honor Society: Sigma Nu Tau
Sigma Nu Tau is a national academic honor society in entrepreneurship whose mission is to promote, recognize, and reward academic excellence in entrepreneurship. The Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College is proud to be a College Chapter as of Spring 2012.
Every spring, Sigma Nu Tau identifies students from our graduate and undergraduate Entrepreneurship programs who qualify for induction. Qualified students have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and have completed at least all of the core coursework in their respective programs. Qualified students are notified and can join Sigma Nu Tau by completing an application form and paying the application fee.
Inductees to Sigma Nu Tau are recognized at the Zicklin School of Business Honors and Recognition Ceremony, held in late Spring. Each inductee receives an embossed, calligraphied membership certificate and a lapel pin.
