Leaders of Tomorrow®

Since 1991, the National Black MBA Association® (NBMBAA®) has been delivering a youth development program to assist young people pursuing their careers as entrepreneurs, business professionals, and beyond. Through the new four pillars of programming, the NBMBAA® LOT® program will provide resources to local advisors to help coach students in leadership, career preparation, college preparation, financial literacy and more.

Collegiate Partnership and HBCU Tour

NBMBAA® is positioned to help the Black community overcome the education gap to reach the highest levels of academia, increase lifetime median income potential and reduce unemployment rates among the Black community. We strive to increase awareness and facilitate access to graduate and business education programs in professional fields. Our Collegiate Partnership Program is designed to help us in this mission by establishing holistic partnerships with institutions of higher education to increase placement rates of black students. Programmatic elements include scholarships, nearpeer mentoring, campus experiences, research collaboration, and more.
