Hofstra’s Zarb School of Business M.B.A. Students Renovate Playground
M.B.A. students from the Frank G. Zarb School of Business practiced corporate social responsibility while volunteering to renovate the playground at the California Avenue Elementary School last month.
To launch the establishment of its TeamMBA chapter, a global initiative for community service by students in graduate management programs, Zarb students decided to start in their own backyard by repainting the children’s playground at the Long Island elementary school located just south of the Hofstra University campus.
In 2005 the Graduate Management Admission Council, owner and administrator of the GMAT exam, started TeamMBA to demonstrate that today’s graduate business students care about more than just making money—they care about making a difference. “Our students are not only gaining valuable educational experience at the Zarb School but they are also initiating community-based activities that responsibly exhibit their commitment to improving the world around them,” said Dean Salvatore F. Sodano.#
