CASE’s social impact program is part of a holistic learning model that helps impact-motivated students build off of their own experiences and identities and Fuqua’s core curriculum to develop critical competencies, establish connections with sector leaders, and cultivate a lifelong community of impact-minded peers.
Through this program, students build the critical mindsets, skills, and habits that leaders in both social impact and impact investing need to help solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
The demand for MBA skills in the social sector is increasing dramatically. The breadth of courses in the core MBA program at Fuqua provides a strong foundation for any student looking to become a successful social impact leader. CASE’s social impact program builds off of this core curriculum by providing opportunities—both inside and outside of the classroom – for students to cultivate the critical competencies needed to contribute to lasting social change.
CASE’s social impact program provides students with direct connections to cutting-edge insights, best practices, and field leaders. Students can participate in various CASE events to hear from and meet with social entrepreneurs and social sector leaders. Students gain first-hand access to CASE’s advisory council as well as to research from leaders in social impact and impact investing.
Earning an MBA and working as a social impact leader are both rigorous endeavors, but having a great support system can make all the difference. CASE’s social impact program offers cohort-based opportunities for peer learning and support that builds lifelong comradery and encourages collaboration, networking, and professional growth.
