About the Event

 Social Enterprise topics are embedded in various student conferences at Columbia Business School. The first conference at the beginning of each academic year is the Annual Social Enterprise Conference, jointly organized by the Social Enterprise Club (a chapter of Net Impact), Green Business Club, and the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise. This event brings together industry leaders, professionals, academics, students, and alumni to share best practices and engender new ideas surrounding the intersection of business and society. Other MBA students groups that have offered conferences with social enterprise content include: Columbia Women in Business, Latin American Business Association, the Energy Club, and South Asian Business Association. In addition, students attend conferences held by other areas of Columbia University including the Earth Institute and the School of International and Public Affairs, as well as external conferences organized by Net Impact, and Business for Social Responsibility to name a few. Social Enterprise-related clubs are also an important part of student life across the University. The Conference unites graduate and undergraduate students from many clubs at this headline event, including a selection of student clubs: Social Entrepreneurship Club, Columbia Impact Investing Initiative, Columbia University Coalition for Sustainable Development, Barnard and Columbia Student’s Design for America, SEBS, Columbia Entrepreneurs Organization, Columbia Law School’s Environmental Law Society, Columbia FinTech, Students for Environmental Action, and Community Impact at Columbia University. Read more about the Social Enterprise Conference.
