MBA JumpStart is committed to bridging the gap between diverse talent and consulting and financial services firms.
Everyday, women and minority business leaders are achieving new levels of success within their chosen fields. They are leading their companies to new levels of profitability by providing unique perspectives and a differentiated approach to business. Realizing the potential of these individuals, corporations have embarked on diversity initiatives designed to recruit, develop, and promote diversity. However, less than 10% of the consulting and financial services industry personnel consists of minorities.1 According to several human resource directors, the problem lies in the inability to identify and educate potential candidates in an effective environment.
MBA JumpStart is designed to bridge the gap between diverse talent entering the top business schools and financial services and consulting firms dedicated to narrowing the shortfalls in minority representation. Our MBA JumpStart Diversity Forums are one way we help bridge this gap.
