    May 14, 2020

    Birton Cowden’s undergraduate entrepreneurship and MBA students are putting their classroom knowledge to work to help businesses struggling to survive through the Covid-19 pandemic. “I put a challenge out to all of my current and past students to take action to help their local small businesses,” Cowden said. “I told them I would give them a large sum of extra credit to come up with alternative business models or even new ones for local businesses to give value to their customers.” Cowden is assistant professor of management and research director at Coles’ Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship Center in the Michael A. Leven School of Management, Entrepreneurship and Hospitality.
