A note from Professor Colander
The Middlebury Professor of the Practice (PoP) Program has developed a number of courses that are designed to give students the opportunity to get some in-course background in business and enterprise:
Fall PoP Courses in Business and Enterprise
- INTD 120 Introduction to Business and Enterprise (Biswas and Colander)
- INTD 220 Management and Enterprise (Biswas)
- INTD 221 Enterprise and Entrepreneurship (Parizeau and Colander)
- INTD 316a and b Accounting, Budgeting and the Liberal Arts (Schozer)
- INTD 319 Investment Management (Nguyen)
These PoP courses are taught either completely or in part by actual practitioners who have experience in business. (Ami Biswas is a management consultant; Ernie Parizeau is a venture capitalist, Michael Schozer is Certified Public Accountant and Securities Executive, and Tim Nguyen is an investment manager.) Thus, PoP courses tend to have a more real world focus than do most liberal arts courses. These courses are offered as Interdepartmental Courses (INTD) and descriptions of them can be found under the Interdepartmental heading in the course guide.
A number of students have asked for guidance as to which of these they should take, so let me briefly provide some suggestions. There are two what might be called introductory courses. The first, INTD 120 (Introduction to Business and Enterprise) can be thought of as a “business for poets” course. It is designed for students who have no business background. It introduces you to business terminology and tools, and gives you a sense of how business people think. You won’t come out of it knowing business, but you will be able to follow at least some of what you read in the Wall Street Journal.
For students interested in just about any aspect of business, consulting, management, or finance, we recommend INTD 316. Accounting and Budgeting is a gateway course for students interested in business and finance. Accounting is the language of business, enterprise and management, and this course provides you with an introduction to that language. (It, (or special permission of the instructor) is required for students taking the Finance course or the Investment Management course, so if you are interested in either of those, you should strongly consider taking it.) Whether you are will have a career in a for-profit, for benefit, government, not-for–profit, or revolutionary movement, you will be responsible for meeting a budget, and often developing one.
In addition to the above two courses, the PoP program offer a variety of courses that introduce you to specific aspects of enterprise. Two are directly related to finance. They are INTD 317 (Finance) (taught in the spring term only) and INTD 319, Investment Management. These two courses, along with accounting, would be our recommended PoP courses for any student who is interested in a career in finance.
For students with more general business interests, we offer two relevant courses: Management and Enterprise (INTD 220) and Entrepreneurship and Enterprise (INTD 221). One of these two courses, combined with the Accounting course (INTD 316) provides students with a good introduction into broader management and consulting issues.

Middlebury College recently signed a collaborative agreement with HBX, Harvard Business School’s online digital education initiative, to make available the Credential of Readiness (CORe) business fundamentals program to current undergraduate students. Designed for liberal arts students, CORe is an interactive online program composed of three (non-credit-bearing) courses: Business Analytics, Economics for Managers, and Financial Accounting. Taught entirely online by Harvard Business School faculty, the program utilizes the school’s HBX platform. Middlebury students will not receive course credit for the CORe program; instead, students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from HBX.
Our agreement with HBX reserves places in each CORe cohort and—importantly—guarantees need-based financial aid from HBX for students currently receiving financial aid at Middlebury. An anonymous Middlebury donor has provided additional funding for qualified students’ unmet need. We are delighted to be able to expand access to this program to all of our students.
If you are interested in the program and want to learn more, attend the information session, visit the HBX website, or schedule an appointment with Ursula Olender, director of career advising in the Center for Careers and Internships.
May cohort – May 16-July 13 (deadline to apply is May 3)
June cohort – June 6-August 18 (deadline to apply is May 24)
July cohort – July 6-August 31 (deadline to apply is June 21)
