As a business student at Champlain, not only will you be working with live clients in class, you'll be working with some of today's most innovative and socially aware businesses. Through internships, you'll learn better business practices, gain real-world skills, and explore your career options. With future-driven, globally focused businesses like Ben & Jerry's, Burton Snowboards, and Seventh Generation based right here in our home of Burlington, Vermont, you'll have opportunities to work with industry leaders and incorporate that professional experience with your studies.
Because you'll start your major classes in your first year through our Upside-Down Curriculum, you'll be qualified for internships sooner. In fact, nine out of ten students complete one internship before graduation, and one third of our students complete four or more internships by the time they graduate. Our interns are highly sought after for their leadership, entrepreneurial mindsets, and socially conscious thinking, and some students are even hired for full-time positions with the organizations where they intern. With one to two years' of professional experience before you graduate, your résumé will stand out when applying for your dream job.
