Conference Overview

Get Ready for Conference 2016

Welcome to the largest event coordinated by the Howard University MBA (HUMBA) Program: The 21st Annual MBA Exclusive (MBAX) conference. This two-day conference is comprised of opportunities including engaging developmental workshops, a Career Fair Exposition with industry-leading companies, and the 12th Annual Minority Case Competition sponsored by LMI.

This year marks the 12th Anniversary of the National Minority Case Competition sponsored by LMI.  We celebrate a decade of excellence from business students across the country, as well as the dedicated faculty at Howard University School of Business. Business students have the opportunity to win up to $11,000 by solving a complex business case, developed by LMI. You can learn more about the Case Competition here!

Registered case teams will be able to take advantage of the $11,000 in prize money, and have full access to all conference activities at no additional charge.  Early registration by September 8, 2016, is just $200 per team.  Free housing for the first 15 registered teams; so, REGISTER TODAY for the 12th Annual Minority Case Competition!

MBAX also provides an excellent opportunity for corporate sponsors to gain access to an exceptional pool of MBA students, expanding the breadth of recruiting activities to a global scale.

Participate and enjoy the MBAX experience as careful planning and excitement are behind every interaction. Current MBA students from all programs are welcome to attend the HUMBA Career Fair Expo for free, as well as any other ticketed events for a nominal fee.
