Given the rapid rate of change in communication, spending a year or two in college without taking any relevant media or design courses simply puts you a year or two behind in learning your field and defers getting experience through internships.

Our Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to begin taking your Marketing classes beginning in your first semester. By the time you finish your first year, you will have taken upward of five courses related to your major!

Champlain College's Robert P. Stiller School of Business spends a lot of time working with employers and internship sites to determine the exact skills, knowledge and characteristics they are seeking in job candidates.

Employers look to hire graduates who have developed expertise in a specific area of business; have strong critical thinking, communication and teamwork skills; and possess the ability to strategize and lead across the whole business enterprise or organization.

The Robert P. Stiller School of Business incorporates this employer input with our academic and professional expertise to provide an integrated cutting-edge education that prepares you exceptionally well in your major field of study.

Regardless of major, all Robert P. Stiller School of Business students share a core business curriculum that includes:
