Our career-focused education will give you a strong advantage when you graduate, whether you want to enter the workplace right away or head to graduate school.

Why Major In Business Administration at Champlain College?

  • Personalize your education with a meaningful concentration. Choose from one of these options:
    • Activist Marketing
    • Business Analytics
    • Business for Good
    • Business Law
    • Computer Science
    • Cybersecurity
    • Global Business
    • Human Resource Management
    • Information Systems & Technology
    • Innovation & Entrepreneurship
    • Management
  • Our Upside-Down Curriculum lets you get into your major classes on day one. 
  • Learn what you are excited about—and what you aren't. By learning about the business world so early in your classes, you'll have more time to explore your career options and your interests, and change it up if you need to.
  • Work with real businesses, big and small. Class speakers, live client projects, and internships with Burlington-area companies—like Ben & Jerry's, Seventh Generation, Burton Snowboards, New Breed Marketing, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and Line Skis—are at your fingertips.
  • Choose a minor that complements your strengths and interests. We offer a wide range of minors in areas that are interesting and in-demand.
  • Learn power skills—not just technical skills. In the Stiller School, you will learn and practice the communication, interpersonal, team-building, organizational, and time-management skills that will power you to success.
  • Discover what inspires you and energizes you. Over your four years with the Stiller School, you will learn what really gives you energy and how you can incorporate that into a meaningful and fulfilling professional career.

Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum got me started in business classes right away, and I quickly realized I love my major! It gave me the peace of mind I needed because I didn't have to wait until junior year to figure out if I was on the right path.
