When there’s a report on the greenest state in the United States, chances are, Vermont’s at the top of that list. The so-called Green Mountain State was No. 1 in the most recent rankings from 24/7 Wall St. and Greenopia.com, thanks to its above-average air quality, number of LEED-registered or certified buildings, low levels of pollution (thanks in part to its small population), and overall small carbon footprint. It’s no surprise then that the state was one of the first to offer a “green” MBA program. At Green Mountain College, students can earn a Master’s of Business Administration in Sustainable Business, a 100% online MBA in Vermont offered since 2006 that focuses on green business issues, such as sustainable organization management and sustainable marketing.

Other online MBA programs in Vermont are offered through the College of St. Joseph and Norwich University and prepare students for careers in management, finance, and other business areas. Some of the major companies operating in the state include National Life Group, Fletcher Allen Health Care, and the University of Vermont. Tourism has long been an important industry to the state, as well, with some of the largest ski areas in the region located in Vermont. An emerging area of the state’s economy is its own brand. Specialty products such as Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and the Vermont Peanut Butter Co. are examples of successful Vermont brands that are helping to drive the state’s business economy.
