The UB MBA Community: Multidimensional Diversity

During your UB MBA experience, the people you meet will become part of your community and your network, supporting you in your post-MBA career aspirations. We welcome under-represented minorities (URM) and diversity across all dimensions.

Employers want highly functioning teams with the widest possible range of perspectives. Our ability to attract students from different backgrounds and countries, and send them out with the common language of business, commitment to teamwork and understanding of management and leadership, will be instrumental in your career success.

As a promoter of diversity in the workplace, we are proud of UB’s rich reputation, and our experiential action learning and diverse cohort will benefit you as you prepare for a career anywhere around the world.

Diversity Positively Correlated to Financial Performance

“Companies in the top quartile for board-gender diversity are 27 percent more likely to outperform financially than those in the bottom quartile. Similarly, companies in the top quartile for ethnically diverse boards are 13 percent more likely to outperform than those in the bottom quartile. 

Further, a striking new finding is that leadership diversity is also convincingly associated with holistic growth ambitions, greater social impact, and more satisfied workforces.”
