The PBL students attended the State Leadership Conference held at LeMoyne College. We are the only community college from New York State in PBL, and we competed in events at the conference against students from colleges such as Stony Brook, Morrisville, SUNY Oswego, LeMoyne, and Binghamton University.
Upon completion of a baccalaureate or higher degree, a student is typically prepared to enter the fields of accounting, business administration, secondary business education, and marketing.
Students should contact their advisor and/or the Coordinator for Transfer and Articulation in the Centers for Student Engagement and Academic Advisement for information on transfer planning. Early consultation to plan the most appropriate course sequence will optimize transferability.

David Pittard, co-owner of Buttonwood Grove Winery, met with Cayuga business students on October 19, 2018, to share the journey of purchasing the winery with his wife in 2014 and the ongoing operations of running a winery. He explained the history of the winery, the agricultural and production side of the business, in addition to marketing, distribution, and sales. The students were given a tour of the entire facility including an up-close look at the grape vines. It was a great experience for our students to see a successful locally owned winery first hand.
“My degree in Business Administration from Cayuga was a great jumpstart for my education and career. Through PBL, I was able to find unique leadership opportunities. Both my local and state treasury positions were incredibly rewarding. Cayuga and PBL gave my resume a strong foundation. I really enjoyed my educational experiences at Cayuga.”
“During my time as a student in the Business Administration, A.S. degree program at Cayuga Community College, several of my experiences directly impacted my level of success achieved upon graduation with the class of 2015. My roles as a member, Secretary, and Vice-President of Cayuga’s Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL Business) chapter prepared me for many of the skills that I use on a daily basis in my career as the Administrative and Project Coordinator for the Cayuga County Office of Tourism.”
“Through PBL and my classes at Cayuga, I gained skills through experiential learning such as time management, meeting minutes documentation, team building and leadership, Microsoft Office Suite proficiency, enhanced bookkeeping abilities, and other necessary capabilities that far exceed what I would have been able to grasp without the experiences I encountered and the mentorship of my professors. These abilities elevated me to achieving the accolade of Tutor of the Year 2015 and made me a highly qualified candidate able to acquire a position in my field before graduation. In all, my tenure at Cayuga prepared me for greatness.”
