A 2012 Net Impact survey revealed that the majority of college students wanted a job where they could make a positive impact on causes and issues that were important to them. This information is mirrored in a new Net Impact study - Business as UNusual: The Student’s Guide to Graduate Programs.
Net Impact surveyed more than 3,300 MBA students for its 2013 Business as UNusual guide and discovered that 85 percent of MBA students prioritized learning about social and environmental issues in graduate school and 89 percent are confident that they will find a job aligned with their values, interests and passions. This issue is so important that 85 percent of those surveyed would take a pay cut of 15 percent in order to work for an organization whose values match their own.
