The UQ Business School Social Economic Engagement Program (SEEP)
MBA students are provided an active learning environment through the Social Economic Engagement Program SEEP), whereby students are connected to organisations which are community based. Working at the grass roots level, students gain invaluable knowledge and experience to understand how people in the 'non for profit' world operate. The program which commenced in the later part of 2010 augments a student’s understanding that leadership in business requires leadership in the community. Students are challenged to develop their leadership capability while giving something back from what is essentially a privileged position.
