BIA update: Tomorrow's leaders

CNN's documentary, "Black in America 2: Tomorrow's Leaders," followed men and women making a difference in the black community.  When we met Mia Jackson, a young woman with an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering, she said she wanted to further her career. She applied to Management Leadership for Tomorrow, an MBA prep program dedicated to preparing minorities for executive positions in business.

Since then, Mia has graduated from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management with a dual degree: an MBA and a Masters in Engineering Management.  But she says it was all at a great cost.  Hear why in this Black in America update.

    oops I thought this was about the other BIA concerning us Natives. Never the less congrats to the young ladyand I'd like to ask would it have worth it if it was just handed ( the degree ) over just like an order at a fast food place.

    Why does race matter? If you qualify good luck in the job. Key word is qualify.
