Conference Introduction

The National Diversity Conferences hosted by MBA Diversity organizations for business professionals to convene for networking, leadership development, and career opportunities. There are case competitions and career fairs, as well as classes associated with each conference.

These conferences are open to all Jenkins Full-Time and Working Professional MBAs.  Best for –

  • Full-time employment candidates graduating in December 2020, May 2021, and August 2021
  • Internship employment candidates for Summer 2021

Because of the pandemic, organizers for MOST the major conferences have moved to a virtual format (Net Impact will still be in-person).

There are differences in employers, attendee profiles, and conference missions.  Choose conferences that align with your needs.  Most MBAs attend National Black and/or the MBA Veterans Conference and Career Expo. 

The Jenkins MBA will offer a stipend up to, but no more than, $250 for the registration fee for one conference.
