What’s in it for me?

Accelerating your non-profit career.

Explore a career that advances principled social change through a variety of professional fields and experiences. Through our MBM® curriculum, associates learn to identify the barriers that prevent them from being more effective employees and collaborators. They learn to improve their ability to use principles-based thinking to help them make more effective decisions.

Discovering what drives you.

Drive your own professional development and discover and develop your strengths and passions—the things that motivate you to learn, contribute, and succeed. You’ll find opportunities to stretch yourself outside your comfort zone, build new skills, and gather knowledge from diverse sources.

Creating value for others.

Receive in-depth education on Market-Based Management®, Charles Koch’s management philosophy that enables organizations to succeed long term by applying the principles of social, scientific, and individual progress. By internalizing and applying these principles to your work, you’ll be equipped with a unique way to solve problems, capture opportunities, and contribute to a society of mutual benefit by creating more value for others.

Advancing principled social change.

Be a part of meaningful work that aims to inspire and support a movement of people from all walks of life and helps eliminate the barriers in society that are making it more difficult people to learn, contribute, and succeed. Through a series of discussions, workshops, projects, guest speakers, and more, KAP will help you supercharge your contributions.
