Center for Entrepreneurship
USF's nationally recognized Center for Entrepreneurship provides academic and practical learning programs for graduate students. The center is part of three colleges at USF: the College of Business, the College of Engineering, and the College of Health.
Small Business Development Center
As Florida's principal provider of small business assistance, the Small Business Development Center at the University of South Florida provides free, one-on-one consulting and low-cost seminars to start-up and existing businesses. It assists them in various aspects of small business development and issues that are important to today's small business owners.
The Business Communications Center, affectionately called the BizComm Center by students and faculty alike, helps students strengthen their communications skills with free workshops and one-on-one services. BizComm staff not only help students with academic papers, presentation skills, and etiquette in professional communications, but are also available to help students polish résumés and draft killer cover letters.
ISDS Practice Center
The ISDS Practice Center gives students with new skills and experiences in doing “real world” projects sponsored by industry partners. Students work in groups of two performing collaborative team-based projects. Every project is supervised by at least one ISDS faculty mentor and at least one representative of the project-sponsoring industry partner. Typically, projects are scoped to last a semester.
Cybersecurity at USF
At USF, the Center for Cybersecurity has as its goal to collaborate with government and private industries to conduct relevant research train and educate students to enter the workforce, and positively affect communities in various outreach programs to ensure optimal security of critical infrastructure from a local to a national scale while maintaining a global perspective.
Supply Chain Management & Sustainability
Supply chain management, reverse logistics, and sustainability greatly interest both domestic and international businesses because these issues impact their profitability — especially in today's competitive marketplace. To that end, the University of South Florida College of Business has created the Center for Supply Chain Management & Sustainability at USF, the first center of its kind in Florida.
