Accelerating Career Development

The Green Business Club, in conjunction with the Social Enterprise Program, Career Management Center, and student clubs at Columbia Business School, provides resources and networks to students pursuing careers in the green business sector across nonprofit, government or nongovernmental organizations, for-profit and nonprofit social ventures, social venture capital firms, and socially responsible businesses. Students leverage the Green Business Club’s resources to develop relationships with organizations, provide industry information, organize career panels and networking events, and publicize job announcements through a variety of channels. Careers in green business span the nonprofit, public and business sectors and are as varied as the interests of students.

The value of the Columbia MBA is evident by the diversity of students and success of its graduates, who are employed with such organizations as The Bridgespan Group; New York City Department of Education; GE Energy (wind/renewables); EcoSecurities; Freedom From Hunger; Dalberg; Victory Schools; Reading Is Fundamental; Orpheus Chamber Orchestra; New York City Economic Development Corporation, and the American Museum of Natural History.
