The Stanford Graduate School of Business includes MBA information sessions around the United States for under-represented audiences, and in the past several years has offered a weekend informational program for prospective students. "You could sense Stanford was attracting top-quality minority applicants," says Yunaima Hernandez, MBA '04, who accepted a marketing position at General Mills this year. The school also offers the Charles P. Bonini Partnership for Diversity Fellowship program, in which selected students are placed in an internship with a participating corporate partner before beginning their studies. Approximately one-third of the student body is international. The school is represented at the National Society of Hispanic MBAs annual conference, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers annual conference, and the HACE career conference for Hispanics. The school's Hispanic Business Students Association is establishing a Hispanic alumni advisory board to help provide leadership, mentoring, and networking. The Alumni Association has strong chapters in Latin America, and the business school partners with the Stanford University Alumni Association for combined events in Latin America.

The Yale School of Management recruits Hispanic MBA students through the MBA Diversity Alliance with other top business schools across the country, MBA Minority Workshops, and in partnership with the National Society of Hispanic MBAs. Support organizations on campus include the Hispanic MBA Advisory Council, the Latin America Student Interest Group, and La Casa Cultural at Yale. The school is a participant in Management Leadership for Tomorrow, a program that provides support and information to prospective minority MBA candidates as they prepare for the graduate-school application process. In 2004, the school was selected as a partner school by the Robert Toigo Foundation, an organization dedicated to the advancement of minority MBAs in the finance industry. The foundation provides to students scholarships, mentoring, and additional assistance with internships and job placement. "What distinguishes the Yale MBA program is the emphasis we put on creating a rich and highly personal learning experience that begins with our students," says Nicole Lindsay, associate director of the school's Admissions & Student Affairs. "We look for MBA students from a broad range of backgrounds and with widely differing experiences who will stimulate each other to grow, both intellectually and professionally."
