Advancing Diversity. Transforming Business.
Since 1966, we’ve been on a mission to enhance diversity and inclusion by striving to reduce the underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in global business education and leadership.
The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is a continually growing and evolving alliance of some of the world’s leading graduate business schools and business organizations, supported by the strength of our extended network of students and alumni.

An MBA degree from one of The Consortium’s cutting-edge member schools is more than just a degree: it’s the first step on the path to success in a globally diverse world. Our bold vision, unchanged since 1966, not just celebrates diversity in education and business, but advances it into boardrooms in the top-tier corporations across the country. Step by step, student by student, we are helping to transform the landscape of education and business to be more diverse, more inclusive, more equitable.
