The Killington School of Resort Management is truly unique – one of the most innovative programs of its kind in the country.

Based on an educational partnership with the Killington-Pico Resort, The KSRM is focused on developing the individual student to her/his full potential.

The KSRM student is immersed in a learning-living environment which develops a well prepared management professional for the largest industry in the world… or any career that the student wishes to pursue. A career and critical thought focus in a liberal arts institution.

Bottom line: a business/management (B.S.) degree – where the student lives, works and learns in partnership with a world class resort.  .
