A Network of Social Change
The growth of the Social Enterprise Initiative at HBS is reflected in the worldwide network of alumni who engage in socially driven pursuits at various stages of their personal and professional lives — whether it’s within the nonprofit, public or corporate sector, alumni pursue a variety of managerial, entrepreneurial, voluntary and philanthropic roles.
Clubs & Activities
Stay connected with other alumni interested in social enterprise while you build lifelong relationships with MBA students, fellow alumni, and Executive Education participants.
Local and regional HBS alumni clubs offer a wide range of social enterprise activities including:
- Social enterprise events and programs for alumni
- Volunteer consulting programs
- Events to benefit the local community
- Fundraising and capacity-building activities to support local nonprofit organizations
Social enterprise sessions are frequently offered to alumni attending reunions. The Social Enterprise Initiative, in collaboration with Alumni Relations, periodically offers other opportunities for learning on topics relating to social enterprise.
The Social Enterprise Initiative, in collaboration with Alumni Career Services and Baker Library, provides resources and support to assist alumni pursuing careers in social enterprise.A good way to begin is to conduct baseline research and identify additional sources of information via the Social Enterprise Industry Research Guide. Research is also available on a variety of specific social enterprise topics in the Faculty & Research section of this site.
