Carlson 4 Community (C4C) was created in 2005 by full-time MBA students at the Carlson School of Management to bring together full-time, part-time and executive MBA students with the school’s alumni and faculty to support local causes.

The school’s leading student organization promoting volunteerism and community involvement within the Twin Cities, C4C has created various opportunities for Carlson students to give back. The biggest event is the annual Carlson MBA Charity Auction, which benefits a different local charity each year as selected by the student body.

C4C is always ready to work with talented people and explore new ideas that contribute to the community. Please contact the C4C team if you have any questions about C4C or our upcoming events.
