Established in 1970, the National Black MBA Association's (NBMBAA) mission is to lead in the creation of educational opportunities and economic growth for African-Americans. As the premier business organization serving professionals of color, the organization is committed to serving members through five channels of engagement: career, education, entrepreneurship, leadership and lifestyle. Over the past 45 years, the NBMBAA has grown from a two-day conference at the University of Chicago to one of the country’s largest professional organizations serving people of color. We are committed to making a sustainable and impactful difference in the communities in which we empower, work, and serve. Learn More
WHO WE ARE
The Boston Chapter was founded in 1986, and attracts a diverse group of students and professionals who are visionaries, leaders, and change agents. The organization's membership base is comprised of both MBAs and professionals that do not have an MBA.
In 1991, visionary MBAs and educators associated with the Boston, New York, and New Jersey chapters launched the Leaders of Tomorrow program (LOT), a leadership development training program geared towards high school students, at the National Black MBA Annual Conference and Exposition in St. Louis, with key initial financial and leadership investment from M&M Mars and Bentley University. In subsequent years, a design team, made up largely of NBMBAA members and educators from the Boston Chapter, developed a unique series of workshops to help young people at risk of underperforming to realize their full potential. In 2016, the Boston Chapter is celebrating its 25th Anniversary of founding LOT.
