University of Vermont
Founded in 1791, the University of Vermont (UVM) is the fifth oldest university in New England. The UVM’s academic program combines faculty-student relationships most commonly found in a small liberal arts college with the resources of a major research institution. The university is home to 9,970 undergraduates, 1,317 graduate students, 454 medical students and 1,364 full- and part-time faculty. Located in Burlington, Vermont (America's #1 College Town -- Travel + Leisure), UVM's setting on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green mountain ranges, gives a mountaintop perspective of all that's possible.
UVM’s School of Business Administration educates responsible managers for success in complex, global, multi-stakeholder and sustainable environments. The new Sustainable Entrepreneurship MBA (SEMBA) program prepares students to create profitable and sustainable business opportunities in a world undergoing transformational change. It is Accelerated ( 1 year program), with a Vermont DNA (having opportunities to learn from, and develop relationships with, leaders from a master class of sustainable enterprises, including Ben & Jerry's to Burton Snowboards, Cabot, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and Seventh Generation), and is Multi-disciplinary (unique curriculum delivered by passionate faculty from our School of Business, Department of Community Development and Applied Economics, and nationally ranked Rubenstein School of Natural Resources as well as the Gund Institute and Vermont Law School).
The Dudley H. Davis Center, venue of the 2015 BoP Global Summit, is the first student center in the nation to receive U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold certification
