A global award recognizing a “commitment to social responsibility”

The TeamMBA Award from the Graduate Management Admissions CouncilAfter winning the 2009 TeamMBA Award from the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) for a “commitment to promoting…social engagement,” Boston University has again been honored for “exemplifying a commitment to social responsibility through the actions of [its] students.”

This year, GMAC, an association of leading business schools around the world, has recognized Boston University with one of only six service awards, granted at a ceremony in June, 2010.

“The annual TeamMBA Award…recognizes schools that exemplify a commitment to social responsibility through the actions of their students and the school’s demonstrated support of these efforts.”

Specifically, BU won the Service Award for Corporate and Social Responsibility, based on the School’s support of its annual, student-run event Link Day, organized with help from the School of Management’s Public Nonprofit Management Program.  In 2010, this event aligned the business skills of 60 MBA students with the needs of 15 area nonprofits.

Last year, Boston University was the only school world-wide awarded GMAC’s overall institutional award for outstanding support of student involvement in social engagement “through school-led programs, services, institutional culture, and more.”

The School of Management’s receipt of these awards, along with the recent recognition of its Net Impact chapter’s top global status, highlight the growing international reputation of BU’s Public Nonprofit Management Program to attract, support, and help shape tomorrow’s  leaders in social responsibility.
