Overview

Prospanica has advocated for Hispanic business professionals for 30 years. Since our founding as the National Society of Hispanic MBAs in 1988, we’ve hosted annual career and professional development conferences, connecting thousands of Hispanics to graduate programs, subject matter experts, corporations and each other.  Prospanica has given over $8 million in scholarships for graduate education and many of those recipients have led our professional chapters and university chapter

Benefits

For several years, the Robinson College of Business has supported student involvement in Prosanica’s Annual Conference and Career Fair. Benefits include access to jobs, internships, scholarships, connections with alumni and the business community.

During FY 18, Robinson was recognized with the National Prospanica 2017 Brillante Award for Educational Excellence, which we received in Philadelphia at the NBMBAA/Prospanica Conference in September 2017.
