Opus College of Business is Supporting Sponsor of the 2009 NSHMBA Conference

Thursday, October 8, 9:00 AM

The UST Opus College of Business is a proud to be a supporting sponsor of the National Society of Hispanic MBAs 2009 Conference and Career Expo.  The national conference, hosted for the first time in Minneapolis, takes place October 8-10 and will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center. 

The event is expected to draw 8,000 attendees, along with representatives from more than 300 sponsoring companies.
NSHMBA consists of 32 professional chapters, with 8,000 members in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  The organization works to create leaders through graduate management education and professional development, to increase Hispanic representation in MBA programs as well as C suites and executive boards, and to provide cultural awareness that is vital in an increasingly diverse workforce.

UST Opus College of Business is excited to support NSHMBA and to represent the University of St. Thomas at this high-profile event.  “Our nation’s growing Hispanic population comprises a significant and important sector that is extremely underrepresented among the key business decision makers,” says Dean Chris Puto.  “Preparing future leaders who can fill this enlarging gap is one of our highest priorities as a premier business school, and we are excited to partner with NSHMBA to achieve this goal.”

Throughout the conference, Opus College of Business staff and business students will network with representatives of Fortune 500 companies from across the country, reinforcing the college’s regional and national reputation as a premier business school.

The Opus College of Business will sponsor a booth at the NSHMBA Career Expo as well as a luxury Sponsors' Lounge.  Representatives of sponsoring companies are invited to the lounge to relax and recharge, and to enjoy amenities such as complimentary WiFi internet access, snacks and massages. 

The lounge will be located in the Career Expo area, #1753.
