For years, Young African MBAs has been helping MBA candidates strengthen their application and build relationships with current students and alumni across all the top business schools.  In 2017, we formalized our efforts through the YAM Business School Prep (BSP) program to provide a structured approach to helping African descendants/residents/passionates pursue the life-changing and career-enhancing experience of earning an MBA degree. Since then, we have helped more than 60 fellows define their next chapter, with most applying and gaining admission to top business school programs in the US and Europe.

Program alumni have attended or will soon start attending Oxford, Michigan Ross, Stanford, HEC, Harvard, Booth, Wharton, INSEAD, Duke, Kellogg, Columbia, and other top business schools. The BSP leadership looks forward to continuing to support talented applicants through their MBA journeys.  Are you one of our next fellows?  Learn more about what our program can offer you.
