The Mission

For 49 years, the African American MBA Association (AAMBAA) has held the Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial Conference. This is the Wharton School's longest running student-led conference with 400+ attendees.

The Whitney M. Young, Jr. Memorial Conference is a forum for prominent Black business and civic leaders to discuss trends disrupting a breadth of industries and functional areas and drive thoughtful dialogue on how to champion innovation with mature enterprises and new ventures.


This year, we are delighted to celebrate the advancement of Black legacy and empowerment of our communities through workshops, speaker sessions, and the continuation of our Small Business Series and New Venture Competition. We are excited to highlight, empower, and support Black professionals engaged in innovation.
