    The Mission of the Kellogg Black Management Association is to develop Black leaders within the community through professional and personal initiatives that create a supportive environment; enhance career development; and attract top talent. We also utilize our active membership, extensive alumni base, and rich history, to support the development, network, and community of our members.

    • Execute high-quality, enlightening programs and events that strengthen the BMA Community and build the BMA brand;

    • Partner with the Admissions Office to continually increase the number of African-Americans and people of African descent enrolling in Kellogg;

    • Provide tools and resources to prepare students for the career search, planning and advancement process during and beyond Kellogg;

    • Build a support system for our membership throughout their time at Kellogg and the rest of their professional careers;

    • Represent the concerns of the BMA Community to Faculty & Staff to refine the Kellogg experience for all parties involved and gather feedback from membership to continuously improve processes;

    • Develop networking opportunities for the BMA Community through alliances with internal groups, greater Chicagoland groups, and peer Business School groups;
