The Latin American MBA Association (LAMBA) at Boston University Questrom School of Business collaborates with students and encourages US and Latin American business professionals to create networks in order to disseminate knowledge and build long-term relationships. LAMBA provides information about employment and internship opportunities available both domestically and abroad. LAMBA supports these efforts via educational forums, networking events, and cultural exchanges inspired by our Latin American culture.
B-CON which stands for “Business Conference ” is a one day event which is run by Boston University’s Questrom MBA students in an effort to cater to conversations that would interest the LatinX professional community. The first conference was held in 2021 and with its success, LAMBA continued to seek more topics that will impact our community. This year the theme is Unidad y Diversificacion.
B-CON 2022 will explore an array of topics including growth marketing, people strategy and cultural transformation, executive leadership, and politics. Our goal is to expand conversations which will envelope the larger theme of diversity and unity and its influence within LATAM and the US.
Please join us by registering and attending on April 30, 2022 starting at 10am

Product Marketing Managers are sought out to be the “voice of the customer” and are considered to have one of the least standardized roles in tech companies.

Historically, the US has had extensive economic and political influence over Latin America. However, in the last couple of decades, this influence has eroded due to emerging global players and other factors. By setting the stage of broad geopolitical relationship, between the US and LATAM, we can start looking at how this affects LatinX in the US. LatinX are the largest minority group in the U.S., and our growing voices and the need for representation are becoming an interest in the U.S. political environment.
This panel will unveil the challenges, opportunities, and tensions between the US and LATAM while they are trying to strategize their position and create/keep their power. The discussion will lead into how this affects the US LatinX and their perception of US politics and their wants and needs from American politics.
After the initial discussion, there will be a 15 min Q&A.
The panel will begin discussing at 2:30pm ETC
