Green Mountain College to Graduate First MBA Class
POULTNEY, VT – On Saturday, May 17, Green Mountain College celebrates its first class of graduates from the masters degree program in sustainable business.
GMC President John F. Brennan will award the MBA degrees to ten students during a 10 a.m. ceremony on the lawn outside the Griswold Library. Vermont Governor James Douglas is the commencement speaker for the event, at which the school’s undergraduate students will also be receiving degrees.
“Our MBA students represent the next generation of business leaders,” said GMC President John F. Brennan. “The College is honored to graduate this talented group, all of whom have shown great dedication and promise.”
This year’s class represents much of the U.S.A., with students from locations such as California, Colorado, New York, Wisconsin and Washington.
Green Mountain College’s MBA program is the nation’s first accredited distance education program in sustainable business. The program emphasizes the triple bottom line approach to business: people, planet and profit. Graduates complete a series of online courses and attend two residencies at GMC’s Poultney campus during the two-year course of study.
