As a student at Whittier College, Robert Jacobo relished learning more about Native American culture through courses in history and anthropology. But it was a business management course that helped him make up his mind about what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. "The professor was also doing some consulting for an Indian tribe," says Jacobo, a member of the Fort Mojave Indian tribe. "He took me on one of his consulting trips." That trip, he says, showed him for the first time how business practices helped the tribe and its businesses. Today, Jacobo, who graduated in May 2011 with a bachelor's in business administration, works as catering manager for the Avi Casino and Resort in Nevada. He believes that if there's a glimmer of hope in business management for American Indians, it is in the tribal colleges.
