The Center for Student Businesses provides training, support and advocacy to our student-run cooperative businesses.

The Center for Student Business has existed since 1975 to support the community of seven student run, cooperative businesses on the UMass Amherst campus.  We provide co-curricular training and education in financial management, cooperative administration, and organizational development.  We provide fiscal oversight and act as advocates for the businesses within the university structure.  This is a unique program that employs approximately 125 undergraduate students and helps them to build invaluable business and life skills.
