Minority MBA Association
The purpose of the Minority MBA Association (MMBAA) is to add value to the Penn State community through continual diversity awareness and recruiting events. The MMBAA strives to create a sense of community by providing a strong support base for professional development and enhancing the academic experience of MBA students.
What Can You Look Forward To?
Welcome Event: We will host an informal welcome event for all Smeal MBAs to help kick the year off on the right foot.
“How to Work a Career Fair” Workshop: This annual event is always a big hit. Held at the beginning of recruiting season, it is an invaluable opportunity to learn how to be most successful at the numerous career fairs hosted throughout the academic year. Hear from a Smeal alumnus how to be most effective in this seemingly intimidating environment.
Hispanic Heritage Month: We will host a few different events to celebrate Hispanic Heritage. Get ready to learn more about the Hispanic culture and traditions!
Black History Month: February events will highlight the significance of Black History. Fellow classmates will be invited to reflect on the importance of celebrating the journey and achievements of the African American race over the past several decades.
Tailgates and Bowling Nights: There is much fun to be had this year! Social events are a great way to build relationships with other students, as well as to network with alums.
