CBEY supports students interested in exploring ideas and pathways at the intersection of business and the environment. From creating new nonprofit and commercial organizations, business models, or other innovations that address pressing environmental challenges, we offer connections to alumni who have been in their shoes and are doing the work.
Since its launch in the spring of 2018, the Yale Center for Business and Environment has facilitated over 250 student engagements with Yale alumni through the Alumni Visiting Mentor series. The series seeks to sponsor alumni back to campus as a resource for students.
Each academic year, a cohort of professionals across different industries devote time to meet with students and discuss anything from industry trends, to new business ideas, to career advice, to coursework support. Mentors meet with students throughout the year and, when possible, join us for an event on campus or remotely.
