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 Metro 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 ($2,500) and undergraduate scholarships ($1,500) scholarships to deserving African-American students enrolled in business and management-related university programs.
In addition, the Chapter awards undergraduate scholarships ($1,000) to deserving African-American high school seniors participating in the NBMBAA Atlanta Chapter Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) program.
The Corporate/Student Workshop kicks off fall term and occurs prior to the NBMBAA Conference. The event brings corporate professionals and graduate business students together in a more intimate environment. Students receive professional development and networking skills in addition to havingface time with influential corporate professionals. This event is typically sponsored by our Corporate Partners and hosted by one of our Educational Partners.
Student Liaison Committee
The Student Liaison Committee (SLC) is comprised of at least two 1st-year and two 2nd-year MBA students from each of the AACSB-accredited MBA programs in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Student Affairs utilizes the SLC to help develop and implement student programming. SLC members act as liaisons for their respective programs, communicating Atlanta Chapter events and activities to faculty, administration, and fellow students.
