GEMBA Legacy is a proposal
to highlight the values of solidarity and justice within the GEMBA program.
— Alejandro Jimenez

GEMBA Legacy nurtures social programs throughout the world, acting as a channel for global social commitment of current and future GEMBA Alumni.

GEMBA Legacy was launched in July 2015 by the 7th cohort of the GEMBA Program at Georgetown University and ESADE Business School, and it's currently a joint effort with both GEMBA 8 and 9 cohorts. This initiative aims to raise awareness of social issues and create projects that offer creative and lasting solutions.

GEMBA Legacy provides a platform for all GEMBA cohorts, including current and future cohorts, alumni, faculty and students of both universities, to identify social issues and generate sustainable initiatives that embody our joint commitment to social transformation. 

GEMBA Legacy believes in promoting education as a powerful tool for change, with a preferential option for the most vulnerable population.

GEMBA Legacy operates as a channel and network of GEMBA Solidarity open to all people with a passion to make a difference in the world by being a part of this innovative and rewarding philanthropic venture.
