Business students are expected to join case competitions and hold many leadership positions to increase the marketability of their résumés. Employers are looking for more than the core classes when they hire an MBA–they want proven, driven leaders and people who can manage multiple projects and keep a team together. With organizations like Net Impact and First Book, UST MBA students are able to distinguish ourselves from the competition.
Can investing in front-line factory workers actually improve your bottom line? The Net Impact Annual Case Competition focuses on the story of Al Fuller, the co-founder of Integrated Packaging Corporation (IPC), who dramatically improved the standard-of-living for his employees while also turning his company’s fortunes around.
