B-Schooled Episode #34: Underrepresented Minority Applicants and the MBA


A Conversation with Roxanne Mendez, Executive Director of the Riordan Programs

In this episode of the podcast, Roxanne Mendez, Executive Director of the Riordan Programs, joins us to talk about the experiences of underrepresented minority applicants applying to business school. For nearly 30 years, the Riordan Programs have been helping underrepresented and minority students excel at the country’s top MBA programs.

Roxanne will give insight into why the number of underrepresented minority candidates considering top MBA programs is still lower than it should be, and will also share what underrepresented minority applicants should keep in mind if they do decide to consider pursuing a graduate business degree.
