Established in 1970, the National Black MBA Association is dedicated to developing partnerships that result in the creation of intellectual and economic wealth in the black community. In partnership with over 350 of the country's top business organizations, the association has inroads into a wide range of industries as well as the public and private sector. Yet all of NBMBAA's partners have one thing in common: they are all committed to the organization's goals and values. The organization gains its strength from a strong belief in community and a commitment to its development through economic and educational development initiatives that support the global African American community.
"This past September, I was able to participate in the annual National Black MBA Association Conference Case Competition. After working for three weeks on a comprehensive marketing strategy for an upcoming product for Chrysler, my case team was able to present our strategy to a number of influential Chrysler representatives and compete against a number of prestigious schools for $50,000 in prizes! Balancing the case work with my other responsibilities in school and home was difficult, but the overall experience was invaluable as I better learned the importance of communication, time management, creativity, innovation, and just having fun. There are a number of case competitions held throughout the country, but I am confident that I would have had a very difficult time finding as unique an opportunity as I did with this particular competition provided by the National Black MBA Association, sponsored by Chrysler, and supported by the office of Diversity and Inclusion Student Services. And while we weren't able to bring home the hardware, I could not be prouder of what we produced and how we performed."
"Representing Fisher on the 2012 National Black Case was an absolutely wonderful experience. As a 1st year MBA student, having early exposure to a full business case that covered all areas of study, from Finance to Marketing to Operations gave me the ability to immediately apply what I was learning in my core classes. Although the overall competition kept me busy, I did have time to land two internship offers from interviews at the conference! Overall, National Black proved to be a great opportunity to network with target companies that don't always make it to campus for recruiting."
"As a JD/MBA candidate, my experience at the conference was very rewarding. I not only gained valuble networking contacts with firms, but i was also able to meet and develop relationships with other members of BMBAA early in the year. At the conference, there was a balance between work and social activities which allowed me to accomplish my goals as well as enjoy my time in the city ."
