Learning through experience is a common theme here.

Bringing together these entities encourages an unprecedented level of collaboration between students, entrepreneurs, and faculty in a facility that looks and feels like a corporate headquarters. Many of our students have started actual businesses here and continue to work with these entities even after graduation.

Gannon is also within a two-hour drive of Cleveland, Buffalo, and Pittsburgh. The closeproximity to college, minor league, and professional sports teams provides another unique learning experience for students. For example, Sport Management and Marketing students often collaborate with business professionals from the Erie Otters team to gain practical skills and expertise.
