Top scholars, top students, a supportive and growing alumni network (65,000 strong), and a Los Angeles location all contribute to Marshall's creation of a community founded in diversity and opportunity. A world-class faculty, innovative team-based curricula, and programs that take students outside their comfort zone are cornerstones of the Marshall experience. The Pacific Rim Education Program, for example, exposes MBAs to business environs abroad. Hispanic recruitment focuses on outreach programs of the Consortium of Graduate Study in Management, the National Society of Hispanic MBAs, and a special Marshall Diversity Weekend in December. Marshall encourages leadership among its Hispanic students through involvement in graduate business student government and more than 25 student organizations committed to community service and industry dialogue, such as the Graduate Latino Business Association. In a Wall Street Journal poll, recruiters rank Marshall's Career Resource Center among the most responsive and best-run operations in the nation. In a Business Week survey, recruiters highly praised Marshall graduates, and students said they were most pleased with the school's academics.

UNC Kenan-Flagler is defined not just by its ethnic, cultural, international, racial, and gender diversity, but also by the diversity of functions and industries from which students come and the high degree to which the community embraces diversity in life experiences. Hispanic students often are members of the Latin American Student Association, the International Business Association (which organizes professional and social events, including Fiesta Latina, an annual event celebrating Latin culture), and the Alliance of Minority Business Students, which promotes academic and career success among African-American, Asian, Hispanic, and other minority MBA students through support systems and special opportunities. It sponsors speakers, workshops, and a variety of academic and social projects, including activities for Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month, and Inside Kenan-Flagler, an annual event to introduce prospective minority students to the School. Chapel Hill is a progressive college town that benefits from its location in the Research Triangle, a high-tech hub of multinational corporations and start-up companies, where executives, entrepreneurs, and academics share ideas and expertise.

Founded in 1900, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth is the oldest graduate school of business in the world. The school has always focused solely on the two-year, full-time, residential MBA degree. Well known for its sense of community, Tuck is one of the smallest MBA programs, allowing its students to enjoy personal interaction with peers and professors. Tuck is devoted to improving its business and academic network throughout Latin America and is the first business school to use Contact Network, a powerful web-based application that allows participants to search the contact database of the Tuck community. Other efforts to increase the school's academic network have included travel, publications, financial aid, admission efforts, seminars, and communications. Tuck has held admission receptions in such countries as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Peru. The Hispanic student association receives assistance in the form of free web services, technical help, access to faculty, and event management services. The Tuck Global Consultancy Projects, a four-credit course sponsored by Tuck's International Center of Business, have included student trips to Costa Rica, Mexico, Paraguay, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Brazil.
