Supporting Hispanic students once in business programmes, Stanford Graduate School of Business, for example, has the Hispanic Business Students Association, which helps newcomers find information about courses and professors.

"This makes the introductory process more welcoming and less intimidating" - says student Joia Pardo. Stanford also participates in the Management Leadership for Tomorrow Program, which invites prospective MBAs from minority communities to a two-day conference. Experts advise on preparing and applying for an MBA and all housing and meal costs are covered.
