To constantly be a part of a family and have access to opportunities that you otherwise would not access to, that’s what makes me come back every year.

Amelia Jackson, National Black MBA Association® Chicago Chapter President

Walking into this conference and seeing thousands of different opportunities that are aligned with my career interest is so powerful. I recommend that everyone come here to get plugged into the great seminars, connections and job opportunities.

No matter who you are, there is something for you at the NBMBAA Conference. If you are a student, there are jobs here for you in addition to great exposure and the ability to practice interviewing techniques. If you are an employer, the best and the brightest talent is right here. If you represent a college or university, like mine, you are at the NBMBAA Conference trying to recruit underrepresented minority students to help them in their future career endeavors.
