Alumni of the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise are an invaluable resource for MBA students and for one another. They participate in conferences, serve as mentors for the Nonprofit Board Leadership Program, provide career advice and mentoring to students, serve as guest speakers in courses, help source pro bono consulting projects, participate in research projects with faculty, attend the center's Annual Reception, and participate in student club lunchtime and evening speaker and social events.
Columbia Business School also taps into New York City, which boasts unsurpassed resources for students and graduates alike. As the global corporate center and home to more nonprofit organizations than any other city, New York offers countless opportunities to learn about and contribute to innovations in social enterprise. The center facilitates these opportunities through pro bono projects inside and outside the classroom, summer internships, seminars, and volunteer opportunities with local organizations.
The center engages a wide network of academic and business leaders who share a vision for finding innovative ways to generate social benefit through business practices. In addition, Columbia University has a vast array of centers and programs that offer activities and courses relevant to students and practitioners interested in social enterprise. These connections not only add exponentially to the MBA experience but also enrich the ongoing professional experience and learning of alumni.
Both the center and the student clubs welcome alumni and practitioner involvement in initiatives at the School. To get involved please contact us. Columbia Business School alumni who would like to be invited alumni events can update their contact details, interests, and email list subscriptions in BANC online.
