Centers of Experience - Robert P. Stiller School of Business

Champlain's Centers of Experience—on-campus learning centers with studio-like environments—provide you with the opportunity to work on professional, real-world projects starting in your first year of college. By working with a Center of Experience, you will have items you can put in your portfolio and real client work you can show off on your résumé. With all of your experience, you'll stand out among candidates for future internships and jobs.

Students across all divisions work together to publish books, launch businesses, develop games and applications, and assist with cybercrime investigation, digital forensics, and information assurance initiatives. At the core of many of our Centers of Experience is business. Students in the Robert P. Stiller School of Business may be especially interested in using their knowledge and developing their skills in the David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry and BYOBiz: Build Your Own Business.


  • Learn more about your own strengths and interests to support your academic, professional, and personal development through our holistic approach to business education and student advising, informed by the David L. Cooperrider Center for Appreciative Inquiry.
  • Champlain College's BYOBiz: Build Your Own Business entrepreneurship program is a unique opportunity for student entrepreneurs to gain assistance building your business. It could be a business you've already started, or the business idea you're thinking about starting. Either way, we will help you get the support you need to advance your organization.
