The event organisers say one of the principal ideas behind MBAid is to give the NGO a fresh perspective, by bringing in a group of people (students) who are unattached to the outcomes of the organisation and are unencumbered by the NGO’s history. "These people bring new insights and engage with the NGO in such a way that brings about the transfer of valuable skills and knowledge. It’s not about students raising funds for the organisation; it’s about how the organisation can become more sustainable through strategic engagement.
"Vital to MBAid’s success is that the NGO wants to be part of a learning, engaging, growing process. Therefore, we encourage the civil society sector to invite NGOs to apply to participate in the programme. When selecting NGOs, we take into consideration factors such as size, their ability to engage, the legitimacy of the project and the safety of the environment for students," the Henley Business School says.
