Whether you want to remain informed about environmental issues or network with fellow alumni around green business careers, the BEI is a powerful way to connect. We’ll keep you informed about new faculty publications, alumni conferences, on-campus events, and speaking opportunities. Through our website and Twitter feed [@HBSBEI], we can help get the word out about the ways in which you’re making a difference.
We encourage you to join this organization, whose mission is “To explore, promote and help HBS Alumni understand the opportunities at the intersection of the environment and business.” We collaborate with the GBAA to pair MBA students with alumni mentors each year.
Making a “Green” Transition
If you’re interested in launching a career transition into green business or other environmental leadership role, HBS alumni resources can help you through career coaching, the alumni resume database, board membership opportunities, and more.
