UCLA Anderson’s Net Impact chapter unites students who want to put their business skills to use in a positive way, whether by incorporating environmental management practices into a large corporation, bringing microfinance to developing countries, working for a small nonprofit or launching into the world of social entrepreneurship. The national Net Impact organization’s mission is to build a network of leaders committed to using the power of business to make a positive net social, environmental and economic impact. UCLA Anderson Net Impact offers a speakers series, internship opportunities, conferences and social events. To meet the needs of our diverse membership, UCLA Anderson Net Impact often partners with industry-specific clubs and other UCLA graduate schools, including public policy, urban planning and public health.
This program pairs select teams of Net Impact members with local nonprofits. Over the course of a six-month engagement, teams participate as nonvoting board members and learn about nonprofit management while completing a strategic consulting project that puts their MBA skills to use for the organization.
