The National Black MBA Association® (NBMBAA) was founded in 1970
at a two-day conference held at the University of Chicago, by a group of African American
MBA students, faculty, advisors, and businessmen. The purposes of the Association are:
- The encouragement of career independence for African American business professionals;
- The promotion of African American intellectual and economic wealth and empowerment, and;
- The professional advancement of African American business professionals.
Comprised of African American and minority business professionals from across the world, the Association is a
business force boasting U.S. and international members and corporate partners. The Association has awarded over
$5 million dollars in scholarships to minority students participating in both undergraduate and graduate
programs around the world. Today, the membership is over 30,000 and the Association has expanded its
outreach to include 47 chapters and 27 collegiate chapters.
At the NBMBAA®, empowering professionals through strategic business forces is fundamental to our
character and the way we represent our members.
We have created numerous ways for our members to contribute to our commitment of fostering
intellectual and economic wealth for the communities in which we empower, work, and serve.
Take some time to peruse our website to learn about all of the fascinating programs that we have to offer.
