Business programs at historically black colleges and universities have improved over the past decade, but challenges remain:
Except for a few, most programs lack funding for more than the basics and look to Corporate America for money and support.
The programs usually don't allocate money for marketing or recruiting of top-notch students, instead of relying on word of mouth.
Many still suffer from their former incarnations as schools for typing and shorthand and are just now gaining clout.
Black business programs often have to share money they raise with their parent institution. Big-name B-schools usually don't.
