The TeamMBA Award
The annual TeamMBA Award program recognizes schools that exemplify a commitment to social responsibility through the actions of their students and the school's demonstrated support of these efforts. The awards are presented in June during a ceremony at the GMAC Annual Conference. Voting on mba.com and teammba.gmac.com and review by the TeamMBA Advisory Committee (composed of business school professionals) determines the award recipients.
To encompass the diversity of schools and activities, the award structure includes two annual award categories: the individual initiative/service project award and the overall institution award.
The individual initiative/service project award recognizes an outstanding individual or group project in categories such as community service, sustainability/greening, and consulting. Entries are evaluated based on scope, impact, innovation, and application of business principles.
The overall institution award recognizes a school for its commitment to promoting and supporting social engagement by its students through school-led programs, services, institutional culture, and community outreach.
