Experience business done better.

Businesses today can do more. So can you.

At the Stiller School of Business, we pose the same challenge to our students as we do to Fortune 500 companies: Do more. And they do.

From preparing and filing taxes for Burlington's underserved communities to managing a portion of the college's endowment, academic credit is a hands-on operation here.

Learning isn't limited to the classroom here at Stiller—nearly all Stiller students are required to participate in an internship as part of their academic curriculum. And because we know that access to opportunities is never the same among students, Stiller makes it possible for all students to learn by doing through close community partnerships, on-campus opportunities, and student clubs and organizations.

In fact, over the last six years, 97% of all Stiller graduates participated in at least one internship while at Champlain. Because they know that when it comes to their future careers, there's no substitute for experience.
