On January 17, 2009, the constitution of the MIT Minority MBA Association was created by nine founders wishing to build an organization with the goal of inspiring and promoting professionalism in the Minority community at MIT.
The founders wish to show each member a journey through a year of affiliation with this organization: during the Fall semester, the focus is on career preparation; Independent Activities Period is the case competition, symposium, and networking; and the Spring semester 's focus is on skill development.
Established in 1970, the National Black MBA Association is dedicated to develop partnerships that result in the creation of intellectual and economic wealth in the black community. In partnership with over 400 of the country's top business organizations, the association has inroads into a wide range of industries as well as the public and private sector. Yet all of NBMBAA's partners have one thing in common: they are all committed to the organization's goals and values.
The organization gains its strength from a strong belief in community and a commitment to its development through economic and educational development initiatives that support the global African American community.
