The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management
We are an active member of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a group of 20 select member schools committed to diversity in business education and leadership. Through The Consortium, applicants can compete for full-tuition, merit fellowship awards. Students who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents and apply through The Consortium will benefit from a consolidated (or “common”) application, reduced application fees, and an opportunity to compete for the full-tuition merit-based Consortium Fellowship.

Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT)
Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) provides students from underrepresented communities – Black, Latinx, and Native American – with the high-impact career coaching, networking and recruiting resources to reach their potential. We are proud to support MLT’s nearly two decades of dedication to the advancement of the representation of people of color in MBA programs and leadership positions.
Our premier partnership with MLT helps Black, Latinx, and Native American students access resources like MLT’s early-career programs to prepare you for leadership roles and equip you with the competencies to advocate for under-represented communities.
MBA JumpStart provides a forum for MBA students seeking careers in finance and consulting. Created to address the lack of diversity and the underrepresentation of minorities in the consulting and financial services industries, MBA JumpStart strives to bridge the gap between the minority students entering top business schools and firms seeking to make their talent pools more diverse.
National Black MBA Association and Prospanica
UNC Kenan-Flagler supports the mission of the National Black MBA Association and Prospanica (formerly The National Society of Hispanic MBAs), and we are proud to host a local collegiate chapter of the National Black MBA Association. Both groups are comprised of minority MBAs, business professionals, and MBA students. Many of our students attend the competitions and conferences sponsored by these groups each year. UNC Kenan-Flagler provides support and preparation services to our students attending these programs before and during the events, including mock interviews, workshops on conference management, and engaging alumni as industry experts.
Robert Toigo Foundation
We are proud supporters of the Robert Toigo Foundation, an organization that aims to increase diversity in the finance industry. The Toigo Foundation hosts annual coaching seminars and career conferences, and offers merit-based fellowships for students interested in finance careers.
