The National Black MBA Association was established in 1970 by a group of Master of Business Administration candidates who met at the University of Chicago. The organization was incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of New York in 1974.

In 1976, visionary African-American MBA professionals founded the “Black MBA Association of Washington, DC” This group later became the Washington, DC Chapter of the National Black MBA Association, Inc. (NBMBAA-DC) in 1982 and in 2001, received its 501(c) (3) status. Through a broad range of activities and programs, the mission of the NBMBAA-DC is to strengthen the economic and intellectual wealth of the African-American community; develop and empower business leaders; partner with local corporations, colleges and institutions to provide new and innovative programs; and enhance the professional development of its members for the 21st century.

The DC Black MBA Association seeks to align itself with outstanding corporate partners that share our commitment to creating educational opportunities and economic growth for African-Americans and diverse business professionals.  We work to foster mutually beneficial relationships that create a pipeline of diverse talent for our partners, offer new and exciting resources and opportunities for our members, while increasing the reach and impact of the National Black MBA Association®.
