The Sustainable Innovation MBA (SI-MBA) Program at the University of Vermont is an AACSB-accredited program for emerging changemakers who believe business can – and must – become a force for good.

This one-year, rigorously accelerated program focuses on the essential toolkit needed to lead businesses to profitable, sustainable, and transformational growth with a fully integrated sustainable business curriculum.

As one of the leading “Green MBA” programs in the nation, the students and alumni of SI-MBA are a tremendous asset to Vermont’s business community and present VBSR members with multiple opportunities!


3 Ways VBSR Members can Work with SI-MBA Students & Alumni:

  1. Host a SI-MBA alumnus in a Post-Graduate Fellowship (Paid) – Fellowships begin as early as August with recently graduated SI-MBA students.

VBSR is collecting interest in working with SI-MBA students and alumni through these opportunities, which will be shared with these emerging leaders through a partnership with the UVM Grossman School of Business: VBSR members will share the opportunities they have with VBSR, who will share them with SI-MBA students/alumni.

These short-term opportunities will bring graduate-level talent and support to your business objectives while providing opportunities for SI-MBA students to apply their comprehensive MBA education, learn new skills, and gain relevant work experience. We also encourage you to consider SI-MBA graduates for your permanent openings!
