Asian MBA Leadership Conference & Career Expo Sept. 10-12




New York, NY (CapitalWirePR)  - The first ever Asian MBA (AMBA) Leadership Conference & Career Expo will be held September 10-12, 2009 in bustling New York City.  It is a groundbreaking event with a mission to connect and empower top Asian American MBAs and professionals.


For years, the corporate sector has recognized the growing talent base of Asian American leaders, but has lacked unity and cohesion in bringing the community together-until now. AMBA is proud to host this inaugural event and bring you a program that addresses critical issues on Asian leadership. Following the enormous successes of The National Black MBA Association and National Society of Hispanic MBAs conferences, AMBA is confident its efforts will galvanize and inspire present and emerging Asian leaders to Rise to New Heights.

Over the course of two and a half days, MBAs, executives and distinguished leaders will partake in the largest professional development, recruiting and networking event ever staged for the Asian American community. The event is expected to attract over 8,000 attendees from global companies, government, not-for profit organizations and universities. AMBA’s Leadership Conference will be comprised of powerful and progressive professional leadership and development workshops, networking sessions, speeches & seminars delivered by acclaimed industry experts and prominent community figures. AMBA is also hosting a Career Expo, which offers unparalleled opportunities for leading companies to connect with the nation’s best Asian American talent.
