NATIONAL BUSINESS CASE COMPETITION
What can a high school student accomplish? Reset your expectations.
The Leaders of Tomorrow National Business Case Competition is a challenge like no other competition in the world. High school students analyze an MBA-level graduate school business case and present recommendations before panels of senior corporate executives and business school faculty. In the process, they must master advanced math, critical thinking, analytical, writing, research, and public speaking skills, and then present detailed financial projections and implementation plans. Judges are instructed to evaluate participants not as high school students, but with the same level of objectivity they would use when evaluating a graduate student or a potential professional consultant.

Sound tough? It is. And that's the point.
Through the Case Competition, these same students are exposed to NBMBAA mentors and coaches who work with them intensively for months. They are guaranteed the help and resources they need to thoroughly communicate the impact of their ideas. In the process, they develop the ability to draw connections between what they are learning in school and what it takes to be a successful leader and the discipline to set goals and achieve them.
Most importantly, they develop the confidence that comes from believing you can accomplish anything.
Since 1991, LOT students from as far away as the United Kingdom and South Africa have met annually to learn from the best minds in the world to explore their career and college opportunities. The Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) Annual Conference is an intensive sun-up to sun-down challenge designed to help minority youth learn how to maximize their potential in both the short and long-terms. Much more than a series of inspirational speeches, the conference will give 8-12th grade students from across the country and around the globe the tools they need to develop a vision, develop action plans, and measure progress towards their goals.
SUCCESS BOOT CAMP
Success Boot Camp is a signature youth professional preparation initiative of the National Black MBA Association, Inc. It is nation’s most intense “microinternship” experience for minority high school students.
Working with trainers, facilitators, coaches, and mentors from every level of the corporate world, academia, and the public policy arena, students summon the courage to tackle extreme high pressure situations. At the same time, they learn by doing—preparing for college by visiting campuses, for their careers by engaging corporate recruiters and executives, and to seize leadership opportunities by collaborating to make their communities better now. They are required to solve the world’s problems and then defend their ideas. And in the process, they begin to realize that the limits to their potential are only those that they place there themselves.
