Welcome to the National Black MBA Association Tampa Chapter - Representing Tampa's Black Professionals

Our chapter started as an interest group in 2007 by seven Tampa area Black professionals from various industries; Sammecia Bagley, Benjamin James, Chante’ Jones, Max Oligario, Raymond Sweet and Jessica Weston, who saw the need for a meeting place organization for Black MBA’s in the Tampa Bay area.

Today, the Tampa Bay Chapter of the National Black MBA Association contributes its success to delivering programs that touch upon the 5 main channels for the National Black MBA Association;

  • Education
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Career
  • Leadership
  • Lifestyle

The Chapter has done this by implementing of bi-monthly “learnshops”; where members are able to obtain information on a variety of topics; such as writing a business plan, marketing the business, minority certifications, branding and many more.
