The Center for Global Management supports student projects that broaden awareness of community and social impact in emerging markets.

Each year, teams of MBA students across degree programs, focus their capstone project on advancing pro-social causes outside the United States. The Center for Global Management provides funding to support primary research for these projects. 

Whether evaluating new models for microfinance, improving global supply chain efficiency, or bringing affordable internet access to rural communities, our global pro-social projects make a real, immediate and often profound impact. 

Recent projects have focused on education, global health, trade, environmental conservation and preservation, social entrepreneurship, international labor rights, empowering low income women and eradicating rural poverty.
