Our Story

In 2006, a group of friends came together to help fulfill a void in the Muslim community.

Fresh out of college and working to advance their careers, they noticed that Muslim professionals who were on leadership tracks in business, entrepreneurship, government, non-profit etc., had difficulties forming a network that would help them navigate their careers.  They knew they weren’t alone in this journey.

There were many Muslims in similar paths that could offer practical advice that would help other Muslims take the right steps and make the most of their careers because, while strong skills and hard work were key determinants for career advancement, networking and mentorship are key stepping stones.

Nothing existed to connect Muslim professionals across professions, industries and countries for this purpose. So if it didn’t exist, then why not create it? Why not establish a platform that would help build a community of like-minded professionals, an invaluable support network that would challenge one another and provided career advice, job-search help, and professional insight?

With this vision in mind, Muslim Urban Professionals (Muppies) was founded.

Growing from a simple Google group of 50 professionals to a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization of over 2,400 members in at least 22 different countries, Muppies offers:

Access to selective job opportunities

A global listserve and member database

Acceptance into top MBA and other graduate programs

A global network of talented and enthusiastic professionals

Opportunities to mentor college and high school students

Career development webinars and professional events around the globe

Muppies is driven by the desire of our members to help each other, to lift each other up and to serve as ladders for one another so that the Muslim professional community can advance together. This is the essence of Muppies. This is our story.
