BU on Board
MBA Board Fellows Program
BU on Board is an experiential learning program run by the Social Impact and Nonprofit Management Club at Boston University Questrom School of Business.
The program’s objective is to create value through reciprocal learning between MBA candidates and partner organizations in the Greater Boston Area. The program offers nonprofits an opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to their board, while also fostering the next generation of board members, nonprofit leaders, and socially-minded business professionals. At the same time, the program allows MBA students to learn about organizational governance and board service. Together, this partnership will help grow the network of nonprofit leaders in the Greater Boston area.
