About TeamMBA

What is TeamMBA?



TeamMBA is about...

Identity. TeamMBA creates a brand for student volunteerism in business schools.

Unity. TeamMBA links business schools worldwide around common goals.

Communication. TeamMBA helps you promote your students’ commitment to the community.

Celebration. TeamMBA celebrates the spirit of giving.

Recognition. TeamMBA shines light on the good work going on at your school.

Building houses, raising money for research, feeding the hungry. Every semester, graduate business students find time to give back to their communities. As volunteers, they show through action that they are engaged, caring and committed to social responsibility.

To celebrate, promote, and publicize this outstanding work, the Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®) started TeamMBA, the global initiative for community service by students in graduate management programs. TeamMBA offers an easy, rewarding way to link volunteer work at your school with similar projects worldwide. It’s our way to show the world that today’s graduate business students are about more than just making money—they are about making a difference.

Since GMAC launched TeamMBA in 2005, hundreds of students, staff, and faculty from scores of schools have donated thousands of volunteer hours and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities and community organizations.

That’s a strong record, but we want to do even more. We’re encouraging more schools to join TeamMBA by annually awarding business schools that participate in outstanding community service projects that highlight how graduate business students help make the world a better place.
