Green Mountain offers a multi-faceted approach to business study that is aligned with our mission to empower students and help them make a positive impact wherever they go after graduation.

The online degree completion curriculum provides you the foundations of business – accounting, economics, marketing, leadership, and statistics, and exposes you to new business practices in sustainability and entrepreneurship.

To graduate, students must complete a minimum of 30 credits (10 courses) at Green Mountain College, including the following:

      • The Power of Sustainability (ELA 2500);
      • Paths to Sustainability (ELA 4500);
      • Business Trends & Your Professional Success (BUS 1000);
      • Mastering Self Leadership (BUS 3000); and
      • Values-Based Strategy and Competitive Advantage Capstone (BUS 4022);

To kick off the online experience, you will take the introduction course, BUS1000: Business Trends and Your Professional Success, prior to any other course. In BUS1000, you’ll learn the importance of self-efficacy to achieve personal and professional success. As part of the course, you will complete a self-efficacy assessment and prepare professional development plans that guide your coursework throughout the program.

Students who graduate the online degree completion program with an average GPA of 2.75 with two years of business practitioner experience may apply directly to our online Sustainable MBA program, online Master of Science in Environmental Studies program, or our online Master of Science in Sustainable Food Systems program.
