Los Angeles Chapter
The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) commenced in 1988 with a vision to be THE premier Latino & Hispanic business organization for Hispanic business professionals.
The Name was changed in 2016 to Prospanica, and a partnership in Southern California with the 14 Chapters of United Latino Students was begun - offering partners in SoCal a unique access to hundreds of Latino/Hispanic undergraduate talent and over 2500+ professional or master's level talent.
Dedicated to increasing the number of Hispanics graduating with Undergraduate or Masters Level Degrees of any kind, Prospanica opens doors for Latino & Hispanic talent by sourcing leadership positions, securing job placement and enhancing professional development.
Though Latinos & Hispanics with MBAs had been the sole focus, 2015 marks the year in which NSHMBA/Prospanica extends its reach beyond the MBA community to Undergraduate and High School-level students. Prospanica realizes by building Hispanic talent from the ground up, they are empowering Latino & Hispanic business professionals to achieve their full educational, economic and social potential.
Current trends depict that Latinos & Hispanics are the largest and fastest growing minority group, having the highest drop-out rate, and are severely underrepresented in professional employment. With Latinos & Hispanics expected to account for 60 percent of the U.S. populations growth between 2005 and 2050, Prospanica knows that Latino & Hispanic success in education and the labor market is of immediate and long-term importance to the nation’s economy.
