The Yale School of Management (SOM) recruits Hispanic MBA students through the MBA Diversity Alliance with other top business schools, through MBA Minority Workshops, and in partnership with the National Society of Hispanic MBAs. Special scholarships have been designated for historically underrepresented students, including the Megunticook Scholars Program, made possible through a generous gift of alumnus Thomas Matlack, SOM '91. On-campus support organizations include the Hispanic MBA Advisory Council, the Latin America Student Interest Group, and La Casa Cultural at Yale. Yale SOM is also an active participant in Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), a program that provides support and information to prospective minority MBA candidates as they prepare for the graduate management education application process. In 2002, Yale SOM and MLT presented the first-ever Pre-MBA Prep Program for minority candidates interested in pursuing an MBA. The program encompassed elements of a successful MBA application, from essay review to mock interviews to financing an MBA. "I strongly encourage those interested in pursuing an MBA to consider the Yale School of Management," says Nicole McKinney, associate director of minority and student affairs at the Yale School of Management.

"I have felt a warm and genuine welcome from my classmates as well as the administration and faculty at Stanford," says Omar Gonzalez, Stanford MBA '03. "The GSB experience has provided a foundation for me to identify and pursue more cogent ways to have an impact in my community." Support for diversity begins with the application process and includes MBA information sessions around the United States for underrepresented audiences, and Stanford Graduate School of Business representation at such events as the National Society of Hispanic MBAs' annual conference and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers' annual conference. In fall 2002, the MBA admissions office conducted the first "Minority Perspectives on the GSB" day for prospective underrepresented populations considering the GSB. In addition, the school makes an effort to reach out to prospective students in Latin America with regional information sessions. Last fall, for example, admissions officers traveled to Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Brazil, as well as to Mexico and Costa Rica, where they conducted information sessions and attended dinner receptions. Also, the business school's alumni association held two executive briefings at chapter events in Mexico.

A business school is fundamentally about people and the kind of community they form. At UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, people have created a fascinating community marked by a full schedule of activities developed by and for students. Diversity, a key strength of the Berkeley MBA program, can be measured in many ways. Students from a variety of ethnic backgrounds are an important part of the Haas School. A third of the students are from outside the United States, and about 30 percent are women. Students' academic backgrounds vary widely, ranging from science and engineering to economics and fine arts. The enriching diversity of the Berkeley MBA program mirrors the makeup of business in the global economy. "This year, with the support of my classmates, I founded the Hispanic MBA Student Association, the first student business club at Haas dedicated solely to the issues facing Hispanic students in business school," says Richard Velazques, Berkeley MBA '03. "We joined the Black Business Student Association to set a strategy for increasing minority enrollment and support in the MBA program while still adhering to the requirements of Prop 209. Diversity is truly valued by the student body here and we are a community in every sense of the word."

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.
