Leaders of Tomorrow- also known as “LOT”, is a network of high school students and professionals working together to guide young people down a path to professional careers. Mentors volunteer as coaches to work with students on a consistent basis and help them to develop the habits necessary for achievement, to set and reach goals, and to understand personal and collective responsibility. Leaders of Tomorrow puts into practice the unique “Life Leadership Model” – an integrated system of activities, workshops, assignments, and measurements that helps to train students in use of the tools necessary for success. Students are then accountable for putting these tools to work.​

Case Competition

The Business Case Competition Program is a competitive 9-week business skills after-school program for high school students. Students learn how to study and address business challenges in team-driven learning environments. They are taught fundamental skills, critical thinking, problem solving, and communication in a 5-week intensive training series. In addition to these fundamental skills, students develop competencies in core business areas such as finance, marketing, product development and sales.

As a highlight to the Leadership Summit, students from across the United States and Canada will deliver their business case to a panel of judges and compete for up to $30K scholarship funds.

Since 2002, hundreds of high school students from across the country have participated in the National Black MBA Association, Leaders of Tomorrow National Business Case competitions. The overall goal of the case competition is to improve students’ analytical, writing, and presentation skills. Leaders of Tomorrow city chapters interact with each other and the program provides an alternative recruitment resource for corporate sponsors and higher education institutions for high school students. The St. Louis Chapter LOT Students won the National Case Compettition in 2013 and 2017!


The National Black MBA Association leads in the creation of educational opportunities and economic growth for African Americans.
