Prospective Partners

Competitive advantage through partnership with The Consortium

Are you considering a partnership with The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management? The benefits are many, as are the rewards. The case for partnership is simple: Competitive, early and continuous access to the brightest and most prepared MBAs in the diversity space. And you would be joining 75 existing corporate partners that are already taking advantage of this opportunity.

Last year, our partners leveraged their Consortium relationship by taking advantage of numerous opportunities to expand their capacity to successfully recruit and retain top-level diverse MBA talent. Learn more about those benefits and levels of partnership.

Our students are highly vetted through the admissions process at our 19 top-tier member schools and by The Consortium team itself. We represent nearly 900 current diverse MBA prospects and more than 9,000 alumni with experience across a wide range of industries and executive leadership functions.

Based on our class of 2017 statistics, our students are:

  • 20 to 41 years of age, averaging 27.
  • 54 percent male, 46 percent female.
  • 46 percent African American; 31 percent Hispanic American; 1 percent American Indian; 6 percent Caucasian; 18 percent other.
  • Three to five years into their careers.
  • U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents.

Membership can pay for itself

Considering that the cost of hiring an executive recruiter to fill a leadership position can cost $30,000 to $50,000, the cost of a Consortium membership can pay for itself very quickly, by providing access to not one, but many highly talented prospects.

Additionally, our partners report a higher yield rate for converting summer interns to full-time hires.
