INROADS: A Key to Success for Business Students Attending HBCU’S

In the 21st Century there is nothing more important than diversity in the work force. INROADS, an international organization makes sure that the most successful students of color get the experience and exposure in the work force.

INROADS was created by Frank C. Carr, and has been booming ever since. The objective of this international organization is to mentor, mold, and develop minority students into successful businessmen and businesswomen in America, and all over the world.

A minority college student can apply to be a part of the organization as soon as freshmen year, and as late as sophomore year. The objective is for INROADS to find an internship for the student to work at for the two to three summers, and possibly full time after graduation. There are many corporations that sponsor and higher these students each year. Some include PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Travelers Insurance, Abercrombie and Fitch, Goldman Sachs, Google, and Johnson and Johnson.
