TeamMBA Initiative Expands to Full Month

TeamMBA Month 2009 will be a large-scale, global initiative designed to raise awareness about how effective business schools are in the business of giving back to their communities. Once again, GMAC will serve as the clearinghouse for communications about TeamMBA Month to the media.

“Now is the time for schools to plan an activity in April that can highlight their commitment to the principle of ‘giving back,’” says Melissa Knueven, who manages TeamMBA at GMAC. Among appropriate activities, she says:

“TeamMBA Month is a chance for business schools to show their creativity as well as commitment to community service,” Knueven says. “Schools can leverage the initiative to challenge or collaborate with neighboring or other schools to have even greater impact on a particular cause. There might also be opportunities for schools to connect with alumni for greater reach.”
