"For 46 years, the NBMBAA has made strides in providing opportunities that create intellectual and economic wealth in the black community," said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. "Their history aligns with our own five-decade legacy of offering high-quality, practical business education in more accessible ways to a wide variety of students across a broad range of backgrounds and communities."

Through this partnership, members of the NBMBAA are eligible for tuition benefits from the University of Dallas. The benefits can be applied to master's programs in the Gupta College of Business and executive education programs.

"We are excited to announce this partnership and look forward to the benefits both our members and UD students will gain as a result of it," said NBMBAA Dallas Vice President of Operations Cameron Shaw.
