BUFFALO, N.Y. — The University at Buffalo School of Management’s Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) has launched a new series of workshops called Business Essentials.

Targeted to small businesses, each series focuses on a different topic to prepare participants with solutions for specific business challenges. 

The introductory lineup includes workshops on writing job descriptions, creating standard operating procedures, employee handbooks, business valuation and performance management, with more to be added over the next several months. 

“Each series will be a workshop in the truest sense of the word,” says Anthony DeSimone, interim executive director of the CEL. “We’ve developed hands-on, interactive classes that will fix many of the common pain points that small-business owners experience.”

Each workshop is three to five weeks long, meeting once a week for two hours. Taught by industry experts, the classes blend accountability, execution and customization for each participant with a deliverable at the end. 

The full workshop schedule, with descriptions, dates, times, pricing and registration, is available at mgt.buffalo.edu/business-essentials.
