About Us | Grossman School of Business | The University of Vermont(title)

Our students and faculty are passionate about building better organizations and a better society.

The University of Vermont Grossman School of Business educates responsible managers for success in complex, global, multi-stakeholder, and sustainable environments. 

Some of the top companies in the country recruit our students, including Google, Amazon, GE, Goldman Sachs, PwC, KPMG, Boeing, Ben & Jerry's, Seventh Generation, Trane, Fidelity, Johnson & Johnson, and Morgan Stanley. More than 90 percent of all business students participate in at least one internship and 95 percent of the students have jobs within six months of graduation.  

Experiential learning is a crucial component of student success. Internship and study abroad opportunities, case and business pitch competitions, networking events with prominent alumni and local and regional business leaders, career panels and business leaders on campus are an important part of the curriculum. 

The educational experience and activities are enriched by our spectacular location: from the energy and innovation of Burlington, Vermont, to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of the Green Mountain state. 

AACSB Accreditation 

Business education at the University of Vermont Grossman School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.
