Boston University’s Graduate School of Management (GSM) Net Impact chapter has achieved Gold status for 2010; it is one of only three graduate chapters across all of New England to receive this top designation, and one of only 16 in the world.

-Net Impact Central

Net Impact is a global nonprofit, spread across six continents, that aims to “inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.”

Gold chapters, the organization explains “are the most outstanding chapters in the Net Impact network. They are characterized by energetic members, dynamic leadership, and excellence in all that they do. They also…actively give back to the network by sharing best practices, mentoring other chapters, and working with Net Impact Central to improve chapter offerings.

The GSM Net Impact chapter is run by a group of the School’s MBA students and is supported by faculty and the Public & Nonprofit Management Program. This year, they have been joined at the School of Management by a new undergraduate Net Impact chapter.
