The Better Business Club seeks to bring together students who are interested in triple bottom line business (TBL: People, Planet, and Profit). This club will provide information on the New Economy of Better Business, which includes Green, Sustainable, Socially Responsible, and Local Business Movements. Leaders in the Better Business Movement (ex. B Lab, SBN Philly, ASBN, Social Entrepreneurs) will be invited to campus to talk to and work with interested students to form a better understanding of the New Economy and figure out how Haverford Students can engage both at and after Haverford. The BBC will work with similar clubs across the country (Berkley, Harvard, Yale, Brown, and UPenn) to share resources and ideas. The overarching goal is to learn about Better Business and engage the greater community in Better Business Issues.

Through collaboration with the Deans Office, Career Development Office, and appropriate Academic Departments, the Pre-MBAOrganization will provide resources and information regarding MBA programs, tour business schools, invite and encourage business school speakers, networking opportunities, and events, standardized test and application preparation, and advocate the business profession.
