Net Impact is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. Spanning six continents, its membership makes up one of the most influential networks of MBAs, graduate students, and professionals in existence today. Net Impact members are current and emerging leaders in CSR, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, international development, and environmental sustainability who are actively improving the world.
Founded in 1946, the Johnson School is Cornell University’s graduate school of management. Consistently ranked as one of the top graduate schools of business, the Johnson School builds upon Cornell’s depth and breadth of distinguished research and teaching, and its vast, worldwide network of alumni, faculty, and colleagues. The school’s “performance learning” approach offers students defined frameworks and analytical tools, combined with expert feedback to solve real problems in real organizations. Deliberately small and extremely selective, the Johnson School maintains an intense, collaborative community, where students develop teamwork and networking skills that foster innovation and deliver results. Programs include one- and two-year MBA degrees, an Executive MBA and the Cornell-Queen’s Executive MBA, which offers interactive videoconferencing sessions across the U.S. and Canada.

The Conference is designed to help members expand their vision of possibility in the world of business. It mobilizes hundreds of students, alumni, and innovative business leaders through an exciting and collaborative few days, featuring a wide array of keynotes, panels, case studies, simulations, and special events. Since 1993, the Net Impact Conference has been hosted by a different MBA Net Impact Chapter. The Conference is the only gathering in the world to bring together both graduate students and professionals to explore the latest ideas, tools, and careers that use business to achieve social and environmental good.
