The Consortium

A Legacy and Commitment to Diversity.

Consortium LogoSimon has a long-standing commitment to inclusive education. As the fourth business school to join The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management in 1968, we remain dedicated to promoting student diversity in order to elevate the academic experience and reflect the multicultural nature of modern business. Today, over 20 percent of Simon MBA students are members of The Consortium.

The Consortium is an alliance of leading American business schools and some of our country’s top corporations. It is dedicated to enhancing diversity in business education and leadership by helping to increase African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native-American representation in member schools’ enrollments and the ranks of management.
