Classes are underway for an exciting new school year on the Emory campus. While our 2017 BBA graduates thrive in new professional and personal opportunities, their class gift legacy of creating social enterprise experiences for the next great generation of BBA students has just begun.
Rachel Chon 19B, BBA Student and Emory Impact Investing Group (EIIG) leader, will be attending Social Capital Market (SOCPA)17 in San Francisco in October. The funds from this campaign will help provide scholarship funding for Rachel to not only attend the conference, but also cover travel costs. SOCAP represents the single largest gathering of impact investors and social enterprise change makers in the world. Rachel looks forward to this fantastic learning and networking opportunity.
Ivena Santilair 18B, BBA student, will return for her 2nd year as a Social Enterprise Fellow. This program recognizes Goizueta students who demonstrate both a deep interest in social enterprise and commitment to social change. The funds from this campaign will help support Ivena’s fellowship experience which includes various social events, hands-on activities, and mentorship opportunities throughout the academic year. We are pleased to announce that Ivena will be joined by at least one additional new BBA fellow who will be announced in September.
Professor Wesley Longhofer returns to teach Business and Society for BBAs once again this fall. A new group of BBAs will learn about corporate social responsibility and how companies are strategically addressing social challenges with business acumen. This dynamic class closes with our 3rd Annual Audacious Ideas Night where students pitch their big ideas for social impact to a panel of all-star judges.
Thanks again for your support. We look forward to updating you on the BBA social enterprise experience this academic year!
