Welcome to NABA-Rutgers Student Chapter



Brief History

In December 1969, a group of African-American accountants wanted to establish an organization to address the concerns of minorities entering the accounting profession and to make a commitment to professional and academic excellence. The group met and was determined to "make a difference" and make an impact in the accounting profession. In 1970, National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) chartered its first professional chapter, located in
New York City. From these humble beginnings, NABA has become a nationwide membership organization representing over 100,000 members.

The Rutgers University-Newark Chapter of NABA was founded in 1992.  Since our inception, the RU-Newark chapter of NABA has always been committed to serving the needs of all students of color on the Newark campus. The RU-Newark chapter of NABA is always recruiting new students, but this year our recruitment efforts are targeted to directly attract more students from all academic majors, ethnic backgrounds, cultures, and religions.  Our Public Relations Committee has been distributing flyers on campus to students inside and outside of classroom.  NABA is not only an organization that is committed to diversity, but is also dedicated to addressing the many needs of our students.

The Rutgers Newark Chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc. (NABA) has the largest student support in the state of New Jersey. Many of its members have been very successful in their respective fields and have continued on to become CPA‘s and top managers within major firms and corporations.

NABA continues to work on campus for the betterment and edification of all students in any major. Its commitment to excellence has made its student members some of the most sought after on campuses across the country. Its emphasis on character building, ethics, morality and professionalism has helped students gain the respect and competence needed to maintain that competitive edge in the business environment. To encourage a continued commitment to excellence, NABA rewards its student members with scholarships based on need and academic performance.

NABA has many conventions throughout the year. The student convention, which is held in October, provides an excellent opportunity for students to attend skills workshops, and interview with prospective employers for summer internships and/or full time employment.


NABA’s purpose is to address the professional and educational needs of its members, by providing avenues for member growth and development in the fields of Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Economics, IT, and general Management professions.
