McMaster Global Business Brigades (MGBB)

McMaster Global Business Brigades (MGBB) is a chapter of the international non-profit Global Brigades, established in 2007. The organization’s objective is to promote sustainable development in under-resourced communities through its holistic development approach, which works to meet the community’s health and economic needs. MGBB is dedicated to directly aiding communities across the globe, from Honduras to Ghana, by supporting Deloitte business professionals who work in partnership with local businesses to understand and address their needs. This club aims to provide McMaster students with the unique opportunity to build their business and communication skills through participation in a Brigade, contributing to a humanitarian project and learning directly from business professionals to helping implement their economic strategies. A Brigade involves student volunteers traveling abroad to the community, where they get first-hand experience in business consultation, implementing financial literacy programs, and developing proposals. This club recognizes the role that financial education and services play in alleviating poverty, and we seek to teach students about this social issue through their direct involvement to empower them to become compassionate and service-oriented global business leaders.
