Curriculum, Research, and Education

Long term plans to integrate research on closely held and family businesses into the academic curriculum of the University include the following:

  • Classes in family business and entrepreneurship, eventually leading to the development of a certificate and degree programs within the Christos M. Cotsakos College of Business.
  • Funding for faculty research projects that examine case studies of family business issues and research into family business best practices, with the goal of scholarly publication and distribution through mass media outlets.
  • The creation of internships for William Paterson students to gain firsthand experience with family and closely held businesses.
