When you are ready to start your MBA, we are here to help you prepare an application that reflects your best self and optimal potential.

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. We are now preparing to start our third BSP cohort for the 2019 MBA admissions cycle, having already helped more than 45 fellows.

Across the program alumni, they have gained admission to and are already completing their MBAs at Michigan Ross, Oxford, 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.


Starting June 23, we will be accepting applications for the Round 2 stream of the 2019 Cohort -- start your application hereThis application pool is meant for those who will be applying to business school this fall as part of the schools' round 2 pool.
