About the School
The Grossman School of Business has 30 tenured and tenure-track faculty from
multiple disciplines, augmented by very experienced, professionally qualified
non-tenure-track faculty and staff, and is home to over 1,000 undergraduate
and graduate students. Our undergraduate degree program provides a distinctive
focus on three interdisciplinary themes: Global Business, Sustainable
Business, and Entrepreneurship. The School has two very successful graduate
programs: Sustainable Innovation MBA (SI-MBA) and Master of Accountancy
(MAcc). Reflecting our school's entrepreneurial and collaborative spirit,
our faculty actively collaborate in their teaching and research with faculty
in other UVM colleges and schools, cross-campus interdisciplinary initiatives
such as the Gund Institute for the Environment, plus the UVM Medical Center
that shares our campus.
Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward.
Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and top-100 research university of a perfect size –
large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet
small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship across all levels of
study, from bachelor's to M.D. and Ph.D. programs. Here, students' educational
experience and activities are enriched by our location — from the energy and
innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and self-reliant spirit of
Vermont. UVM provides students endless ways to explore the world, challenge
ideas, and dig in on the most pressing social, environmental, and economic
issues of our time.
The University is located in Burlington, Vermont, and enjoys a panoramic
setting on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Green Mountains of
Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Our idyllic small college
town perennially appears on national rankings that laud its livability, access
to nature and outdoor recreation (including the best boating and skiing in
the northeast), thriving food and music scene, rising identity as a
technology and innovation hub, and its status as a top college town.
Burlington's nickname, BTV, comes from the code for its international airport,
just 10 minutes from campus. With Montreal a 90-minute and Boston a 3.5-hour
drive away, international and metropolitan culture are easily accessible for
