According to Whitman’s Interim Dean Alex McKelvie, “We are delighted to be partnering with a preeminent organization like MLT to help prepare our future students with the tools they need to pursue an MBA and then land high-potential jobs afterward. MLT is a leading source of diverse talent for top corporations nationally, and we’re so happy to join their impressive list of academic partners.”
Whitman hopes the partnership will help increase the diversity of the Whitman School community and help in the long-term career development of students of color after graduation. As part of this, MLT offers a six-month MBA prep training program to best position members for graduate school and direct access to admissions decision makers.
“Whitman continues to invest heavily in our students and their future careers,” says McKelvie. “Supporting our underrepresented minority students, in particular, is a high priority for us. This new partnership will help us attract and recruit fantastic students — and perhaps most importantly, provide them with access to an outstanding network of talented professionals who will benefit them throughout their careers through the MLT alumni network.”
