The Green Business Club is part of the Tamer Institute for Social Enterprise and Climate Change at Columbia Business School, which provides a framework for students to think in broader terms about their role in business and society, and prepares them with the knowledge and experience to respond to the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

The Tamer Institute supports a broad range of activities that help Columbia Business School students embrace the breadth and depth of social enterprise. Students develop a perspective on how to apply business skills to social enterprise endeavors and align personal and professional values in careers that result in social benefits to a broader community. The Tamer Institute offers elective courses, career support through the Summer Fellowship Program, Loan Assistance for graduates, and experiential learning opportunities including the Nonprofit Board Leadership Program and the International Development Consulting Projects Travel Fund.

In addition to the Green Business Club, the institute also serves as an umbrella for a range of student clubs addressing social and environmental issues at alumni and speaker events and at the Annual Social Enterprise Conference in October.
