Experience Our Culture of Inclusion

Ranked the No. 8 most diverse MBA program by U.S. News (November 2015), Simon is dedicated to supporting the MBA student experience by promoting diversity in graduate education and business. Our annual Diversity Conference gives US underrepresented minority candidates a chance to learn more about the opportunities available at the School, as well as meet with students, alumni, staff, and faculty.

The 2016 Diversity Conference inspired the Simon community through a series of immersive lectures and engaging events. View our photo album to get a glimpse of the conference.
