Career Success

The idea that a college education must provide its graduates with a deep skill set and extensive hands-on experience that translate into real value in the marketplace is not new to us. Originally founded in 1878 as a business school, Champlain College has a long tradition of preparing its graduates to excel in targeted career fields.
