Antioch’s MBA students founded a chapter of Net Impact in 2007 to serve multiple needs: connection with a broader network of social change students and businesses, national conference accessibility, service to local businesses, career development, and ongoing webinar training with national leaders. Since then, the chapter has grown in both membership and enthusiasm, and was awarded “Silver Status” for these efforts in 2010, an award given to only 15 percent of the top chapters among MBA programs. At present, students can’t imagine Antioch without it.
Antioch’s Net Impact works to host community events, provide networking connections for career development, and create a venue for our students to discuss and analyze business trends beyond the classroom. These events include a national conference, where Antioch’s students gather with the over 2,500 global Net Impact participants to brainstorm, workshop, and learn from luminaries in the field of sustainable business.
