(July 24, 2013) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) College of Business has partnered with the National Society of Hispanic M.B.A.s (NSHMBA) to be the lead academic sponsor of its 25th Anniversary Annual Conference & Career Expo in San Antonio Oct. 10-12.

The UTSA College of Business has been active with NSHMBA since 2001. In 2006, the college received the NSHMBA Brillante Award for Educational Excellence, its most prestigious award. In 2009, the college was named a University Partner of NSHMBA and has developed a strong partnership at the local and national levels by providing students with M.B.A.-level scholarships as well as career and professional development opportunities.

"Our main focus in the UTSA College of Business is transforming our students into business professionals primed with analytical and leadership skills necessary to provide them with the opportunities to succeed professionally at a national level," said Gerry Sanders, dean of the UTSA College of Business. "We are excited to serve as the academic lead for the 2013 NSHMBA conference, because it allows us to showcase our talented students to top national employers, spread awareness about the strength of our students and build upon current employer relationships."

The NSHMBA career expo will offer current M.B.A. students and recent graduates the opportunity to interview with more than 2,000 human resources recruiters from top employers. Undergraduates attending the event also will benefit from UTSA's participation by networking with admissions officers and faculty from M.B.A. programs.

An integral part of an emerging Tier One research institution, the UTSA College of Business has a longstanding tradition of providing both first-generation and minority students with high-quality academic programs and student services. It is one of the 40 largest business schools in the nation with more than 5,700 students. Recognized for developing "Knowledge for a New World," the UTSA College of Business offers a comprehensive business curriculum with more than 46 degree programs. The NSHMBA partnership with the UTSA College of Business is a key component in attracting top academic and professional talent to the national conference.

Hispanic Business magazine has ranked the UTSA College of Business graduate program No. 7 in the nation for Hispanics. Additionally, UTSA ranks among the top 10 U.S. institutions awarding both undergraduate and graduate degrees to Hispanic students, according to 2013 reports by Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education and Diverse Issues in Higher Education.

Founded in 1988 as a nonprofit organization, NSHMBA is dedicated to building and advancing Hispanic leadership, advocating the pursuit of higher education and providing its members with world-class professional development and career management programs. Visit nshmba.org for more information.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
