HBCU Symposium

HBCU Symposium

National Black MBA Association® recognizes Historically Black Colleges and Universities as a true source of academic accomplishment and great pride for the Black community, as well as the entire nation. At NBMBAA®, we are committed to the professional advancement of our members and are continuously seeking new opportunities and benefits to provide HBCUs.

On January 24 & 25, 2019, NBMBAA® hosted the HBCU Symposium at its headquarters in Atlanta, GA. The goal of this 2-day event was to enhance the relationship between NBMBAA® and HBCU institutions. Our President and CEO, Jesse Tyson, is committed to address an alarming datapoint which revealed Blacks now represent only 45% of attendees at the annual NBMBAA® Conference. To address the issue, we hosted workshops to find workable solutions to increasing the numbers of Black students who take advantage of the programming and placement opportunities provided by the NBMBAA® at our annual conference and year-round.

The candid conversations from the event provided meaningful data that will be used to develop enhanced programming resources and best practices, specifically for our HBCU Collegiate Partners. In addition to NBMBAA® leadership, the Symposium attendees included presidents, deans and administrators from 10 HBCUs, along with postsecondary organizations and corporate partners.
