NBMBAA® Twin Cities Chapter


Joffrey Wilson, Twin Cities Chapter President

The National Black MBA Association®, Inc. (NBMBAA) is a non-profit organization of minority MBAs, business professionals, entrepreneurs and MBA students. With thousands of members world-wide working in both private and public sectors, we share a commitment to education and business – the two principal keys to the economic development of the Black community.
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, many African American managers relocated or were recruited to the Twin Cities to enhance their career opportunities. While moving to Minnesota was good for career advancement, largely, they found themselves socially and professionally isolated when away from their offices. This shared experience led charter members to create a professional support system – a local chapter of NBMBAA. In partnership with General Mills, Pillsbury, First Bank [now US Bancorp], Norwest Bank, 3M and Honeywell, a Twin Cities chapter was born.
Our members are graduate students and business professionals representing a variety of professional industries with the common the goals of exposure, career development and advancement. The chapter’s commitment is to provide valued-added programming and services that align with these goals.
The local chapter is managed by a volunteer executive committee of elected officers who act under established bylaws. The executive committee establishes policy, guides programs, approves expenditures and sets overall strategy for the organization.
The principal source of funding is revenue-sharing from our affiliate organization, The National Black MBA Association®, Inc., which is headquartered in Chicago, IL. The NBMBAA® expects that all chapter organizations will apply the funds to local career development and scholarship programs.
