Support for diversity at this leading management education program begins with the application process. In addition to information sessions for underrepresented audiences, the School offers a weekend entitled "Many Voices" for diversity candidates. On the career front, the School takes part in the National Society of Hispanic MBA conference, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers conference, and the HACE career conference. It also participates in the Management Leadership for Tomorrow program, a nonprofit organization working to increase the presence of minorities in fast track entry-level business careers. Through the Bonini Partnership for Diversity Fellowship program, selected fellows entering the MBA program are placed in a nine- to twelve-month internship with a participating corporate partner and mentor.
In fall 2007, Stanford launched a new MBA curriculum that is more personalized with more student advising, more choice, expanded leadership development, more global content and a required international experience. The program will allow students with diverse experiences to take courses that best match each individual's background. It also builds on the School's strategically small student body size (6:1 faculty-student ratio) and collaborative culture.
Mentorship and networking take place through the Latin American Club and the Hispanic Business Students Association (HBSA), which honors a Hispanic alumnus/a every year at its Jerry Porras Latino Leadership Award banquet named for one of the senior faculty. "I've been so impressed with the student body," says Aldo King, who expects to earn the School's new joint MBA/MS in Environmental Resources and will be co-president of the HBSA. The Texas native said rich networking opportunities drew him to that group.
Networking is further supported through the Hispanic alumni directory. Hispanic alumni, both U.S. and Latin American citizens, also are part of the Business School's Advisory Council, composed of prominent alumni who advise the dean.
