Using a marketing MBA for world good
posted by pakora1 to work & money (11 answers total)
Okay this is a loaded question but..
I have an MBA in marketing and work in the online advertising business. My goal is to use my MBA to make a difference in the world. Tall order? maybe
My interest lie in
1) helping eradicate poverty in impoverished nations or
2) helping the old/senior in nations where there is considerable poverty or where they have been largely ignored
3) fighting against animal cruelty
I really need input here as I am at my wits end as to how i can use my business degree to achieve these goals. My heroes are folks of the Grameen foundation but to do any such work I would need a finance degree and I am terrible at finance.
Not sure how my online advertising experience can be channelized. Going back to school is not an option
I really want to make a difference in old and poor people's lives. Not sure how
All input is very welcome, if you know of foundations/others who did something similiar that would be good. Also, I am in my early 40's so dropping this life and volunteering around the world wouldnt work
Thanks everyone in advance
