Appalachian State University is partnering with Prospanica to increase the number of qualified Hispanic students applying for their MBA in the Walker College of Business.
Prospanica is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the Hispanic community to achieve their full educational, economic and social potential. The organization works to fulfill this mission to its members by providing access to higher education for Hispanics seeking professional advancement in business; offering resources, information and a sense of community to business students and professionals to increase their development and advancement opportunities; and propagating a culture of participation and leadership to advocate for the growth of Hispanic professionals in corporate America.
The Walker College of Business is committed to promoting an inclusive environment for all Appalachian business faculty, staff and students to enhance their cross-cultural and community leadership and engagement. Learn more.
"We're excited to offer Prospanica members a 20% online tuition benefit and to launch our on-campus Prospanica Scholars program," said App State's MBA program director, Dr. Neel Das. "We are hopeful that this partnership will further increase applications from underrepresented populations and bring new perspectives to our program and future cohorts."
One in-state, full-time student in the on-campus MBA program will be selected annually as App State's Prospanica Scholar and will receive financial assistance equal to at least 50% of in-state graduate tuition and fees.
