Student Organizations

Net Impact

Change The World Through Business!

Net Impact is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to make a positive impact on society by growing and strengthening a community of leaders who use business to improve the world. The group, whose membership includes students from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds, meets monthly to discuss issues related to environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable business practices.

Meetings feature guest speakers from area businesses including the Cleveland Indians, The Taylor Company, and Eaton Corporation.

Networking opportunities with the Corporate Roundtable allow chapter members to meet leaders in the regional sustainable business movement. The group makes a continuous effort to provide members with professional development opportunities within the region and nationally.

What Net Impact Chapters Do:

Net Impact Chapters offer several "change initiatives" programs. These initiatives are strategically chosen for maximum impact – not only for having high potential to create change at one university, but also for having the potential to demonstrate that graduate business students can and will change the world through business.

How Net Impact Benefits Students:

One of Net Impact's primary goals is to help members find careers with meaning. Two of our most well known career services are the Career Expo at the Net Impact Annual Conference and our job board. Net Impact also offers issues in depth calls to interact with industry leaders; weekly, monthly, and quarterly newsletters.
