Business: Accounting
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Johnson State College in Johnson, VT
Accounting is the language of business, but business isn’t the only field where accountants are in demand these days. Nonprofit organizations, schools and hospitals, government agencies and grassroots enterprises all need accountants. That’s because the image of an accountant as a “bean counter” is rapidly fading. Instead, today’s accountant focuses on auditing controls — both preventive controls (designed to prevent errors or irregularities from happening) and forensic controls (designed to find errors or irregularities after they occur). They are trouble-shooters and puzzle-solvers with a knack for numbers and an eye for details.

The world – and the world of business – is changing. So we teach business differently here. Green Mountain College’s sustainable business program will teach you how businesses, both for profit and non-profit, succeed financially while also contributing to the environment and social justice. It’s often called the “triple bottom line approach” (people, planet, profit) which looks at organizational success in economic, environmental and social terms. Our sustainable business curriculum prepares our graduates for successful careers in the growing green jobs sector, and to be successful entrepreneurs. If you are a person who gets excited about the idea of building your own enterprise, you’ll need business skills to translate that vision into a reality. At GMC, we place a strong emphasis on entrepreneurship while providing a solid foundation in finance, accounting, marketing, organizational leadership and ethics. Your professors in the business department have real world experience working in environmentally and socially focused businesses. Because classes are small and the emphasis is on applying what you learn in the classroom, you gain a depth of knowledge, practical skills, and valuable contacts so you’ll be ready to launch your career. The sustainable business program also makes it easy for you to complete a double major or combine business courses with another area of interest without tying up all your electives, or complete a double major.

Your first courses will teach you about key economic concepts and the role of markets, along with how to measure and interpret Gross Domestic Product (GDP), unemployment and price levels. You'll examine economic instability through a study of causes and policy prescriptions from two major opposing schools of thought: Classical and Keynesian. You'll learn about interest rates and the Federal Reserve and consider current policy debates on international trade, monetary and fiscal policy, the deficit, economic growth and productivity. You'll also have an introduction to how economists interpret the everyday decisions of consumers, businesses and workers and apply economic analysis to real-world questions like minimum wage, business profits, taxes, outsourcing and environmental policies. Later courses cover statistical thinking as applied to such topics as probability distributions, regressions, correlation, analysis of variance and so on. Advanced macro- and micro-economics classes in our department delve deeper into theories and policies surrounding income and price level, interest rates and monetary and fiscal policy. You'll more closely examine market failures and government involvement in the economy. Your studies will culminate as a senior in a research thesis. You will prepare an original research proposal on a topic that interests you, conduct research, and present your results with close faculty guidance from start to finish. Economics opens up many job opportunities. As an economics major you will learn analytical, critical thinking, and communication skills that are in demand by many firms and government agencies. As an Economics major you will have the opportunity to conduct research on and off campus.
