A Network for Change
The Social Enterprise Initiative at HBS is a focal point for the creativity and energy of its worldwide community. This network includes students and alumni with backgrounds in all sectors who seek to engage in socially-driven pursuits at various stages of their personal and professional lives.
Student Spotlight: Social Enterprise Club
Focused on inspiring, educating, and connecting leaders who will create social change in the world, the Social Enterprise Club aims to cultivate a strong community of students committed to creating social impact in their careers. In addition to club-wide programming-such as annual events, speakers' series, and career treks-the club has six specific interest groups.
“Leading the Social Enterprise Club gave me the change to get to know so many other like-minded students and faculty, which in turn expanded my understanding of how I could uniquely make a difference post-MBA.”
Shivam Mallick Shah Co-President, HBS Social Enterprise ClubMBA 1999
