About Us

What is Net Impact?
Net Impact is a network of more than 11,000 new-generation leaders committed to using the power of business to improve the world. It is also one of the most innovative and influential networks of MBAs, graduate students and young professionals in existence today. Our members believe that business can both earn a profit and create positive social change. Through a central office in San Francisco and more than 100 chapters in cities and graduate schools around the globe, Net Impact offers a portfolio of programs that enable members to transform this ideal into measurable results.

What is the Mission of the Saint Joseph’s University Chapter of Net Impact?
The Saint Joseph’s University Net Impact Chapter aims to create an educational forum for the exchange and dissemination of ideas formed at the intersection of business practice and social change. Those participating in this conversation will find a community of like-minded leaders at SJU.

In particular, we aim:

  • to contribute to the educational community by bringing speakers to campus that have knowledge of topics like Socially Responsible Investment, Corporate Social Responsibility, Non-Profit Management, Business Ethics, Economic Development, and Social Entrepreneurship
  • to influence the Graduate Business curriculum
  • to help students find and secure career opportunities by providing programmatic resources and a strong network
  • to represent Saint Joseph’s University at the Annual Net Impact Conference
The formation of a Net Impact Chapter at SJU fits naturally with the University’s Jesuit tradition of encouraging a focus on others and unifying thoughtfulness with action.
