NBMBAA® History

The National Black MBA Association® was conceived in 1970 to help Blacks coming into the corporate sector, largely for the first time, share experiences and insights to help make the journey easier. By nurturing these new professionals, the organization helped early members navigate and, ultimately, succeed in unfamiliar and frequently challenging environments. It is those professionals who have risen up and reached back to bring up the next generation of Black professionals through providing coaching, guidance, and mentoring. This has carried through the decades as the members who have followed found the same sense of connection and camaraderie among their colleagues and have continued to reach back to uplift new generations. NBMBAA has a deep and rich history of enriching the lives of Black youth and professionals that we continue to celebrate today.
