Prospective Student FAQs
Duke is excited about growing the number of students looking to incorporate social Impact with a strong business school education. We hope that the following Frequently Asked Questions will assist you in learning more about CASE.
Where do Duke MBAs with an interest in social entrepreneurship work?
The Fuqua School of business produces leaders of consequence. Duke MBA alumni are known for their outrageous ambition to make a difference. Our alumni work in all sectors of society—the public, private, and social sectors. We invite you to view a list of alumni working in the social sector and read profiles of featured alumni.
I plan to visit Duke and would
like to set up a time to meet with CASE. Can I schedule an appointment?
While we wish we had the time to meet individually with every interested applicant, at times our schedules do not allow for such one-on-one meetings. We encourage you to review this website, and do feel free to contact the Social Impact Club. If you are able to give us 2-3 weeks notice of a visit, that may lead to a brief meeting with one of the staff members of CASE.

Do you have any courses, programs, or
activities for Fuqua WEMBA, GEMBA, or Cross-Continent students?
Currently, all of our courses and programs are focused on serving the Daytime MBA students. However, if student demand exists and our capacity increases, we may expand our offering to the other MBA programs in the future. Additionally, CASE Events are open to non-Daytime MBA students when they are on campus, as are all of the alumni programs with the exception of the Class of 2001 Loan Forgiveness Fund. If any executive MBA students have a particular interest in CASE, please contact us and we will try to arrange a time to meet when you are in residence.
