Curriculum

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.
