"BUSINESS REPORT" in the Silver City Daily Press:

The purpose of the column is to promote discussion of business education topics and regional economic issues using newspaper-writing techniques.
The estate of Charles Hatfield, who in the early 1980's was an adjunct instructor of investments, bequeathed to the Business Department $15,000 to be used by the students for portfolio management. Finance students manage the portfolio as part of their course assignments.
The Center is located on the campus of WNMU and provides counseling, educational opportunities and planning assistance to the small business community at large. The University provides facilities to the SBCD as well as in-link support for its operation. One faculty member is liaison to the Center and works with the Center staff to present educational programs. The College of Business, in a collaborative effort with the SBDC, offers an entrepreneurship course once or twice per year to the public for college credit. Portions of the course are open to the community and interested parties may attend, depending upon the subject material presented. For instance, if an individual wants to learn about marketing, he or she may attend the sections on marketing without enrolling in the entire course. The overall goal of this course is to teach the student how to develop a business plan.
