Building a Diverse Community

Through an engaged and equitable application process, the Notre Dame MBA strives to create a diverse student body in each cohort. Further, by committing financial resources and partnering with organizations that are also dedicated to advancing equal access to business education, the program is able to support qualified applicants from underrepresented groups.
