MBA Nonprofit Board Member Program

Crummer MBA Nonprofit Board Member Program

In 2006, the Edyth Bush Institute, in partnership with the Leadership Development Center, began offering organizational members of the Institute an opportunity to receive an active Crummer MBA student to serve on their nonprofit board of directors for the length of the student’s education.

Placements occur in the Spring and Fall of each calendar year.

Benefits to Participating Nonprofit Organizations

These bright, energetic students are valuable additions to the boards they serve.
Nonprofit organizations who choose to participate receive an individual who has received training in board governance. The MBA Student also contributes to the nonprofit board of directors in many ways:

  • Providing business skills based on their experiences at the Crummer Graduate School of Business.
  • Access to the counsel of Crummer faculty and staff.
  • Increasing the board’s circle of contacts.
  • Creating a new generation of leaders committed to the mission of Florida nonprofit organizations.
