Why do I need an MBA in Vermont?

There are a number of tech firms that have set up shop Burlington. In Essex Junction, just outside of Burlington, IBM has a major facility employing more than 6,000 people. There are elements of a new economy popping up continuously in Burlington. Opportunities for those considering MBA programs in Vermont abound. 

There are some military suppliers in the state that employ substantial numbers: GE Aircraft Engines in Rutland and General Dynamics Armament Production in Burlington are two of them. They are branches of major corporations and offer a foot in the door for a Vermont MBA grad who would like to integrate into a corporate culture and find a role in product and market development.

There are also the occasional local success stories: Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream in St. Albans and Waterbury and Green Mountain Coffee in Waterbury.  Both are major employers in the state and both have made a tremendous success of developing regional distribution channels for their products.

In the case of Ben and Jerry’s, the distribution has been national for some time. But a quality product like Green Mountain Coffee is an interesting challenge for an MBA. The challenge is to manage a corporate balance sheet while expanding the distribution base and finding the capital to support local advertising and promotion in new markets.
