(Nov. 24, 2009)--The UTSA College of Business recently was named a University Partner by the National Society of Hispanic M.B.A.s (NSHMBA). The partnership was announced this month during the NSHMBA San Antonio Chapter banquet.

The University Partner program was established by NSHMBA to increase the number of Hispanic students completing bachelor's and master's degrees. Partners agree to provide financial assistance to outstanding Hispanic students. The first UTSA NSHMBA scholarship will be awarded in fall 2010.

"It is an honor that my alma mater has become a NSHMBA University Partner," said Peter Morales, president of the San Antonio chapter of NSHMBA and assistant director of graduate business career services in the College of Business. "As a first-generation college graduate, I understand the importance of a graduate business education for an individual's professional advancement, and I appreciate the college's commitment to supporting the development of leaders in our community."

The UTSA College of Business has been active with NSHMBA since 2001. In 2006, the college received NSHMBA's Brillante Award for Educational Excellence, their most prestigious award. NSHMBA's mission is to foster Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development.
