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.

  • Education
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Career
  • Leadership

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.
