ATLANTA–Prospanica: the Association of Hispanic Professionals, and the Atlanta chapter of the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) both recognized Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business with 2017 awards for its commitment to preparing diverse students for future success.
Prospanica named Robinson national recipient of its 2017 Brillante Award, the highest honor conferred by the association, in the educational excellence category at the 2017 Prospanica Conference and Career Expo in Philadelphia, PA. Previous Brillante Award honorees include the University of Central Florida, the University of Texas at San Antonio and Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.
The NBMBAA’s Atlanta chapter named the college its 2017 Educational Partner of the Year due to its many national and local contributions to the organization. Robinson case competition teams have placed among the top 3 teams nationally in the NBMBAA’s national case competition from 2014 – 2016, and they won the competition in 2014 and 2015; the college participates in its undergraduate business case competition; and it serves as the host practice location for the Leaders of Tomorrow business case competition for the Atlanta-based high school students.
“We are enormously gratified to be recognized by both Prospanica and the Atlanta chapter of NBMBAA,” said Robinson College Dean Richard Phillips. “We value our partnerships with both organizations and we appreciate the benefits they provide our students and alumni. But, as meaningful as each of these awards are individually, it is all the sweeter to receive them both in the same year.”
