Following a generous gift from Lawrence N. Field (BBA, ’52) in 1998, Baruch College’s Small Business Lab was expanded and renamed the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship. Today, the Field Center provides a comprehensive, contemporary, integrated set of educational and support services to current and aspiring entrepreneurs within the New York City entrepreneurial ecosystem. In so doing, our faculty and staff seek to cultivate the creativity and enrich the futures of all those we serve.
