Access Duke MBAs
Many Duke MBA students and alumni seek opportunities to utilize their business skills for social impact. Gain access to their skills, passion, and expertise:
Host a Board Associate (Triangle-area organizations only): The Fuqua on Board program matches Duke MBA students and local alumni with Durham area nonprofits to serve as non-voting board members during the course of the academic year. Over the course of a seven-month apprenticeship, pairs of students work closely with a board mentor, participate regularly in board meetings and attend relevant committee meetings. Students serve as non-voting board associates, gaining valuable insight into the inner workings of nonprofit organizations while providing the nonprofits with fresh perspectives and critical business skills.

Hire a Fuqua MBA: An increasing number of Duke MBAs are seeking to apply their business skills and experience by working in the social sector. CASE manages two financial aid programs to help reduce the financial barriers to pursuing summer internships or full-time jobs with nonprofits: the CASE Summer Internship Program and the Fuqua Loan Assistance Program. Potential employers can learn more about these programs, the hiring process, and how best to attract the right Duke MBA to your organization. Learn more…
Host an intern during the academic year (Triangle-area organizations only): Many Duke MBA students seek unpaid internships with for-profit or nonprofit social-purpose organizations during the fall or spring. They may receive academic credit for these internships through participating in a Mentored Study in Entrepreneurship. Students commit to spending at least 2 hours per week on-site and at least 8 hours per week on assigned tasks over a period of 14 weeks. While the course is designed for students to identify organizations where they would like to gain experience, at times, students seek recommendations for organizations interested in hosting an intern.
Work with an MBA consulting team: The Fuqua Student Consulting Program offers students a for-credit opporutunity in which small groups of MBA students work with local businesses and nonprofits on issues of strategic interest over the course of an academic year. Each year, about 20% of the Fuqua Student Consulting Program is composed of nonprofit organizations. Organizations interested in participating should contact the program manager in summer; applications due in August. Managed by Professor William A. Sax, email@example.com, Tel 660-7741, Fax 660-7971. For more information and to apply, visit the Fuqua Student Consulting Program website.
