It's Not Just About Your MBA...

Since 2002, MLT has staked an influential place in the historically underdeveloped career paths of minorities in America. In partnership with over 40 leading corporations, top MBA programs and other non-profit organizations, MLT works with its Fellows at the critical points that define their career trajectories: college to early career, early career to MBA and mid-career to senior management. MBA Prep from MLT offers disciplined, groundbreaking guidance for the rigorous business school application process, as well as gives you access to a high performing peer community that will change your career trajectory.

...It's About the Path to Senior Leadership

MLT equips African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans with the hard and soft skills, career roadmap, coaching, mentoring, and door-opening relationships required to become high-impact business and community leaders. Virtually every senior leader would say that they would not be where they are today without some or all of those key ingredients, yet these ingredients are not taught in even the best classrooms and instead, are delivered through informal channels to which minorities have limited access. MLT formalizes access to these ingredients and significantly broadens the pipeline of senior minority leaders who can catalyze change in our communities.

Why Participate in MBA Prep?

The road to business school is complex. MBA Prep guides Fellows through the application and interview process and shows them what it takes to be successful in business school and beyond. MBA Prep includes:

Application roadmap: MBA Prep demystifies the application process with cogent goals and been-there advice. Admissions officers and MLT clarify the process and debunk myths.

One-on-one coaching: Our Fellows benefit from a dedicated relationship with an MLT coach, who guides them through our curriculum and helps develop actions plans and solid application strategies.  Our team includes graduates from top business schools who have successfully navigated the MBA application process and gone on to lead both corporate and non-profit organizations.

Unprecedented early exposure: Participants build meaningful relationships with representatives from outstanding business schools and corporations several months prior to matriculation.

Unique skill development curriculum: Our curriculum is delivered in partnership with leading business schools, top corporations and non-profits who seek the best talent. The Fellow experience includes seminars on business school campuses and boot camps that are led by organizations including PepsiCo, Google, Citigroup, McKinsey and Teach For America.
