Join VBSR, The University of Vermont – Grossman School of Business, Burton Snowboards, SunCommon, and Casella for “Learning from One Another: Vermont Businesses & UVM SI-MBA Students.”

How does your business stay informed and educated in the latest developments in social responsibility?

UVM SI-MBA alumni and business hosts of the Sustainable Innovation MBA Practicum Projects* will share lessons learned at the leading edge of socially responsible business and how to effectively engage emerging leaders in both this growing field and experiential learning opportunities. Panelists will discuss challenges, solutions, and emerging ideas in the space of socially responsible business and share their experience working together so that we can learn from them.

All Vermont business leaders and students are welcome to learn, connect, and gain inspiration. This is a great opportunity to meet and network with UVM SI-MBA students and alumni!

*The capstone experience of the Sustainable Innovation MBA is the Practicum Project: a full-time, hands-on, three-month consulting engagement with an organization seeking to advance sustainable business ideas.
