The students enrolled at the University of Vermont's Sustainable Entrepreneurship MBA (SEMBA) program learn how to create profitable, sustainable, business opportunities in a world undergoing transformational change. As graduates of our program, these students will become the next generation of business leaders and change agents - disruptors, innovators, and visionary entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. The SEMBA program seeks to fundamentally reinvent business education and the MBA degree to address the challenges we face in the 21st century-environment, ethics, entrepreneurship, poverty, and inequality. Every course in the SEMBA program highlights issues of sustainability and innovation. Experience-based learning is a central component of the SEMBA curriculum and most of the courses include project-based work. The program is structured in 4 modules of 7-8 weeks each. Each module consists of a series of short, intense 1-2 credit courses, with a total of 45 credits overall. The program is an AACSB accredited MBA.
