Three students from the University's Percy J. Vaughn, Jr. College of Business Administration (COBA) were selected for and attended the national "My HBCU Summit," which was held in Atlanta, Ga. in early November. The program was sponsored by the Our HBCU Matters Foundation, INVESCO, State Street, The National College Hall of Fame and Google.
The summit was a career development opportunity, explained Dr. Kamal Hingorani, COBA's dean.
"The three MBA students who were chosen to attend the Atlanta summit for an all-expense-paid opportunity, were Bradly Pettway (new MBA), Matthew Clarke and Joshua West, both of whom are soon-to-be graduating MBAs," Hingorani said. "The summit is a three-day immersive experience that promotes education, activism, and career development. The Summit engages with HBCU students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters."
Hingorani shared that the program’s sponsors and corporate partners are involved because they are committed to providing a wealth of opportunities for attendees to learn, engage, and be exposed to careers in various industries.
"It was three days of intensive career development training and opportunities from morning to evening, and it included mixers and other opportunities for the students to interact with those from other universities. It was a huge honor to have our Alabama State students selected to attend," stated Hingorani.
