Net Impact is a nonprofit membership organization for students interested in using business skills to promote positive change and social impact. At Mendoza, we believe that business can be a force for good in the world. We seek to address the divide between discussing corporate social responsibility in the classroom and putting it into practice in the business world and the wider community.
We support students seeking careers across all functions such as finance, consulting and marketing and help them understand how to make a social impact through their work. We also encourage and support members interested in alternate career paths like Microfinance and social enterprise, renewable energy, corporate social responsibility and sustainable business to name a few. Members enjoy exclusive access to career education programs, networking opportunities and experiential learning through:
Service Corps Program - providing an opportunity for students to serve as volunteer consultants on projects for local and national nonprofit organizations
Ask More of Business Conference - our annual biggest conference inviting industry leaders and eminent speakers to speak and share their views on sustainable business, best and new practices that are creating impact around us.
Social Impact Week and Net Impact Day - providing education and provoking conversation on socially responsible business
Guest Keynote Speakers - bringing national business leaders to Mendoza College of Business for keynote presentations, insight sharing and roundtable-style discussions.
