The Black MBA Association (BMBAA) seeks to enrich the experience for its members by sponsoring activities that promote professional development, cultural enrichment and social interaction. Professional emphasis is placed on those issues that directly affect the role of African-Americans in management and that impact the business community at large. Members are exposed to networking opportunities through annual events such as the National Black MBA Association Conference. Externally, the organization is committed to promoting awareness and interaction by sponsoring activities with other MBA clubs. This role has extended beyond the graduate community to include a formal mentoring relationship with minority undergraduate business students.
