Empowering Business Students
Educating & Equipping Indigenous Leaders
AIBL is the only American Indigenous non-profit organization solely dedicated to empowering business students in the United States. Our programs are designed to engage students in activities that stimulate, enhance, and expand educational experiences beyond traditional academic methods. All students are encouraged to participate in AIBL regardless of race, academic major, or career objectives.
Only 11% of Native Americans obtain Bachelor’s degrees and 6% obtain Graduate level degrees. AIBL aims to provide Indigenous youth with the resources, support, and work experience necessary to improve these statistics. As a direct result of completing our internship program, our 2020 cohort of students reported tremendous growth.
