The Kelley School of Business MBA Program was one of three finalist business schools for the GMAC's TeamMBA Institutional Award (2009-2010). This is the first time the Kelley School of Business MBA Program reached the finals for this award.
Team MBA is part of GMAC (Graduate Management Admission Council) and is the global initiative for community service by students in graduate management programs. Since GMAC launched Team MBA in 2005, hundreds of students, staff, and faculty from scores of schools have donated thousands of volunteer hours and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities and community organizations: more than $500,000 raised for charity and more than 25,000 volunteer hours as of 2009.
The annual TeamMBA Award program recognizes schools that exemplify a commitment to social responsibility through the actions of their students and the school's demonstrated support of these efforts. The awards are presented in June during a ceremony at the GMAC® Annual Industry Conference. Entries are reviewed by a committee composed of business school professionals.
The overall institution award recognizes a school for its commitment to promoting and supporting social engagement by its students through school-led programs, services, institutional culture, and more.
