Student Affairs acts as the liaison between the Chapter and educational institutions. Student Affairs works with graduate and undergraduate business students as well as faculty, staff, and administration of metropolitan Atlanta graduate business schools. Student Affairs recruits and retains Chapter student members, develops and executes programs that address their needs, and facilitates the scholarship application and selection process.
The NBMBAA Scholarship Program has been in existence since 1982. The NBMBAA Atlanta Chapter believes an investment in the education of our youth is an investment in our future. The Atlanta Chapter has historically awarded more than $20,000 in scholarships annually. The Scholarship Program promotes the NBMBAA mission of identifying and increasing the pool of African-American talent for business, public, private, and non-profit sectors. The program is supported by donations from our corporate partners, education partners, and members.
The NBMBAA Atlanta Chapter awards graduate and undergraduate scholarships to deserving African-American students enrolled in business and management-related university programs. The Chapter also awards undergraduate scholarships to deserving African-American high school seniors participating in the NBMBAA Atlanta Chapter Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) program.
The University of Pittsburgh’s Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business awards a Full MBA Scholarship through the NBMBAA Atlanta Chapter. This scholarship includes full tuition for two (2) years or four (4) academic semesters.
