Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

Twelve new universities join the organization's mission of MBA funding for Hispanics, bringing the new total of partners to 54 and closing the gap on its goal of 60 partners by close of 2010

DALLAS, July 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Recognizing an MBA is key to successful career advancement, the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) responded with its University Partnership Program (UPP). Created in 2006, the UPP's goal provides select academic institutions an expanded pool of qualified Hispanic applicants for graduate business programs, while also providing financial assistance to Hispanic students and professionals to complete bachelor and master's degrees through scholarships, fellowships and assistantships to qualifying individuals.

Invigorating and supporting the Hispanic pipeline with students finishing higher education is the mission of the University Partnership Program (UPP), and the recent addition of 12 new university partners ensure the UPP's goals are met. Financial assistance for outstanding Hispanics has been made possible by the participating universities in the program. The latest business schools include:

American University, Kogod School of Business

Clark University, Graduate School of Management

Columbia University, Columbia Business School

Cornell University, The Johnson School

George Mason University, School of Management

Georgetown University, McDonough School of Business

The College of William and Mary, Mason School of Business

The George Washington University, School of Business

The University of Chicago, Booth Graduate School of Business

Thunderbird School of Global Management

University of Hawaii, Shidler College of Business

University of Virginia, Darden School

The latest list brings the total number of partnering universities to 54, and the organization just steps closer to its goal of 60 universities in the UPP by the end of 2010.

"At the beginning of this year, NSHMBA really took a hard look at the avenues through which it offers financial assistance to students, and determined that our biggest assets are the universities," said Steve Ramos, NSHMBA Interim CEO. "Realizing the role universities play, we became very aggressive with our efforts to recruit more universities and position NSHMBA where it needs to be in order to secure better financial support for qualified talent."

NSHMBA encourages more universities to join its partnership program and help build the number of opportunities available for top Hispanic students seeking MBAs, and to develop a close relationship with the NSHMBA local chapters. In 2009, NSHMBA awarded through the University Partnership Program over $680,000 in financial assistance to outstanding, deserving Hispanics pursuing their Master of Business Administration (MBA) or equivalent.
