The Premier Network for Muslim Professionals.
Since 2006, Muppies members have strived to empower and advance Muslim professionals in their careers and communities. Muppies envisions a global community of professionals that supports the advancement of Muslim leaders in private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Muppies offers Muslim professionals –in leadership tracks in business, entrepreneurship, government, and nonprofit– professional development opportunities, networking opportunities, and in-person and online support. The Muppies network is made up of Muslims on similar paths who offer practical advice for others to make the most of their careers because, while strong skills and hard work are key determinants of career advancement, networking and mentorship are key stepping stones.
This invaluable support network provides career advice, job-search support, and professional insight. Muppies offers:
Access to selective job opportunities
A global listserv and member database
Exclusive admissions resources to selective schools
A global network of talented and enthusiastic professionals
Opportunities to mentor college students
Career development webinars and professional events around the globe
Over the past fifteen years, Muppies has grown from an organic listserv to a premier, global, professional membership association. Muppies has scaled to a global 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with over 2,900 members in 33 countries and 11 active local city committees across the globe. Over the years, Muppies has added admissions counseling, mentorship programs, and professional development activities to our programming to better serve our growing number of constituents.
City Leaders have mentored college students, initiated a variety of community service projects, and have hosted countless networking and leadership development opportunities for Muppies members and members of their local communities.
Muppies is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering and advancing Muslim professionals to be leaders in their careers and communities.
We envision a global community of professionals that supports the advancement of Muslim leaders in private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
