Nicholas School Business and Environment Club-Net Impact
The Business and Environment Club-Net Impact is a networking and professional development club that connects Nicholas School student with environmental professionals in the private sector and provides access to resources for further business-related education. BEC-NI provides Nicholas School students with an outlet to access environmental opportunities within the world of business and expand their knowledge and skills related to the field.
BEC-NI networking allows business professionals the opportunity to learn more about the MEM program and the beneficial environmental perspective we can contribute in a business role for their company. Our club is directly aligned with the goals of the Nicholas School administration in terms of placing more MEMs in private sector jobs.
BEC-NI provides the additional training and resources that help prepare MEM graduates to be successful in corporate careers, while differentiating them from MBA students. To fulfill this mission, BEC-NI will remain committed to providing its members with an array of opportunities that will:
- Develop and strengthen the skills, instincts, abilities, and resources of environmental management students to become leaders in the sustainability field and influence change.
- Grow the professional network of Nicholas School of the Environment students by engaging with committed practitioners in the sustainability field with an emphasis on Nicholas School alumni.
- Increase awareness of Net Impact’s role in various organizational structures including nonprofits, government agencies, and private businesses.
