What is the best measure of a successful person? Is it the one who brings home the biggest paycheck, or the one who lives conscientiously and strives to make the community and the world a better place?
We firmly believe it's the latter. But being a Samaritan doesn't mean you have to live a shoestring existence. Employers are looking for businesspeople, policymakers, researchers and educators who are aware of environmental challenges we face. The opportunity to make a career out of doing good has never been riper.
Where can you go with a GMC degree? Lot's of places!
Many of our graduates move on to big cities or go abroad to work in politics and commerce. Many stay in Vermont or New England to start businesses, run farms, and get involved in education and community development.
Because we focus on one-on-one interaction with faculty, you will leave GMC with recommendations from professors who know and appreciate your strengths and care about your post-graduate success. Most importantly, our students go into the world richly informed about the most pressing issues society faces today. They know what it takes to lead and they're hungry for a chance to change the world. That's attractive to employers and graduate programs, and it gets Green Mountain College graduates jobs they want doing work they love.
