On Dec. 7, Frostburg State University at the University System of Maryland at Hagerstown launched a Small Business/Entrepreneurship concentration for students in the undergraduate business administration program.
Marty Mattare, FSU at USMH business program director, gave a brief presentation about the program.
"It is one of our largest business concentrations at FSU," Mattare said.
"It is designed for those interested in starting and running their own businesses, and we have had graduates who have started successful businesses upon receiving their degrees."
The entrepreneurship concentration is one of six different concentration areas business administration students may choose.
"Many of the courses in the concentration focus on business management, and the qualities necessary to manage a small business," Mattare said.
After Mattare explained the program, 17 students in the entrepreneurship business plan course presented their ideas and plans for small businesses, including restaurants, an auto repair, and a golf putting green.
