Black School Launching Two New Centers

The Black School of Business is launching two new outreach centers to focus on improving financial literacy and helping family-owned businesses.

The new Center for Financial Literacy will expand on the school’s education and training efforts undertaken in recent years in partnership with the CFA Society of Pittsburgh. The center will provide research-based financial education to high school students, secondary school educators, and adults.

The Center for Family Business will support the needs of family-owned businesses in northwestern Pennsylvania, which make up about 90 percent of all small businesses in the region. Information and expertise in the areas of succession planning, estate planning, social media, management information, and other aspects critical to the success of family-owned businesses will be advanced by the new center.
