The National Black MBA Association® (NBMBAA®) is holding its 38th Annual National Conference & Exposition in New Orleans, Tuesday Oct. 11 – 15. This year’s conference is designed to increase access to careers in management, educate and build entrepreneurs, sharpen and enhance leadership skills, and help attendees secure jobs.

“Although the job market is improving, some professionals with graduate-level degrees still have difficulty finding quality jobs,” says Jesse Tyson, President & CEO, National Black MBA Association. “Our Career Expo will connect attendees with recruiters from leading companies like Facebook, Nationwide and Microsoft. Our professional development programming is designed to help attendees sharpen their leadership skills and increase their preparedness for the workforce or entrepreneurship.”

The conference theme, “The Q Factor: Quality, a Leadership Paradigm,” highlights the importance of quality leadership and how it is used to inspire, disrupt and transform the business landscape.

This year’s conference will incorporate more than 50 executives and innovators from across the country, including keynote addresses from celebrity speakers like athletes and entrepreneurs Laila Ali, Jerome Bettis, Walter Bond, Atom Factory Chair and CEO Troy Carter and Claire Sulmers, founder of “The Fashion Bomb Daily.”

Eight thousand registrants are expected to attend. For more information, visit: http://www.nbmbaaconference.org.
