Green Recruiting

Fuqua is proud to host green recruiting events on campus, in which we ask employers to refrain from distributing giveaway items to all students in attendance. As an alternative, a company may display a QR Code linked to your organization’s marketing materials, choose to bring a few products to display, or conduct a raffle-style giveaway for one or two attendees. 

In support of Fuqua's focus on sustainable business practices, the green recruiting policy calls for campus recruiting events to be giveaway-free to:

  • Emphasize interactions between employers and students as the focus of the recruiting process.
  • Reduce cost, fuel use, effort, and waste associated with the packaging, shipping, storing, and distribution of company giveaway items.
  • Spotlight environmental issues among key Fuqua stakeholders, including students, alumni, recruiters, and staff.

Please note: Students consistently tell us that the giveaways do not influence their job choices and are often given to others or discarded.

In lieu of giveaways, an employer may donate to causes that are supported by the Fuqua student community:

  • CASE Summer Internship Fund
    The Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) Summer Internship Fund enables first-year Daytime MBA students to learn about the rewards and challenges of social sector management without making a significant financial sacrifice. This fund enables organizations that otherwise could not afford to hire MBA student interns to benefit from their expertise in areas such as finance, management consulting, strategic planning, and marketing. Donations are awarded to students interning in the social sector to supplement the often below-market salaries offered by non-profit and government agencies.
  • Duke MBA Games
    The Duke MBA Games is a student-run organization that raises more than $100,000 annually for the Special Olympics of North Carolina. Donating to the Duke MBA Games gives an organization exposure to the entire Fuqua community, as the organization engages students, faculty, and alumni by hosting fun and meaningful events throughout the year.

Donations can be made by check or credit card. Companies should provide the following information to their industry account managers:

  • Name
  • Job title, phone number, mailing address and email address
  • Company name
  • Name of the student organization
  • Indicate the donation reason as "In support of green recruiting at Fuqua"
