2022 Updates

Students Interns


The Small Business Internship Program (SBIP), formerly the Small Business Consulting Practice program (SBCP), is a project funded by the City Council of New York involving a partnership between the newly created School of Business, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS), the Bronx Tech Center and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The goal of this project is to create a virtuous circle by providing Lehman business students with applied business training and experiential learning while at the same time supplying Bronx-based small businesses with needed support and resources in the form of student interns. The program was revamped and relaunched in Summer/Fall 2022 after a pause due to COVID19.

Digital skills training for small business employees

Digital skills training for small business employees

NY Means Business offered critical digital skills and safety training, as well as consultation services, to NYC small business owners and their employees. Lehman College Tech Center was a suitable business partner for NYC Small Business Services as Lehman was able to provide a team of experienced staff from multiple departments who were expert in small business services, program development, online training design and delivery and client services. The leveraging of existing staff at CUNY on the Concourse and resources allowed Lehman to scale quickly and be responsive to the changing NYC small business ecosystem post-pandemic.
