Prospective students interested in Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business can "kick the tires and look under the hood" during the school's diversity weekend in November, says Colleen McMullen, executive director for diversity initiatives at the business school. The weekend includes workshops on how to strengthen applications, information from the career center on where Tepper MBAs work and opportunities to visit classes.

Carnegie Mellon and Georgetown will be represented at the National Diversity MBA Summit.

"Many of our schools are really interested in maintaining or increasing our diversity talent in our programs," says McMullen. "Any opportunity that we have to kind of wave our flag to a population that has already kind of self selected their interest in business, it's a great opportunity for us."
