Should it be "integrates" instead of "integrating"?

go for E, if so.

what's the verb in this sentence????

As presented above, none of the choices is correct.

I can think of A as close but with the following amendments - It's possible there was a cut paste error somewhere

A consortium of historically Black colleges in the United States IS capitalizing on such schools' traditionally rich relationships with Afircan nations, AND intergrating African concerns into international business study.

IS is required after United States because if it is not there the sentence would read

A consortium of historically Black colleges in the United States capitalizing on such schools traditionally rich relationships with Afircan nations, intergrating African concerns into international business study.

The participle "capitalizing" would modify United States incorrectly whereas it is supposed to modify Consortium.

As far as my little knowledge goes, an auxilliary verb is missing in all options so there is no correct answer.

A consortium of historically Black colleges in the United States, capitalizing on such schools’ traditionally rich relationships with African nations, integrates African concerns into an international business study

A. capitalizing on such schools’ traditionally rich relationships with African nations
B. while capitalizing on the traditionally rich relationships of such schools and African nations
C. through capitalizing on such schools’ and African nations’ traditionally rich relationships
D. which capitalize on the traditionally rich relationships of such schools and African nations

maybe the problem itself should be modified like this.
in this case, the answer seems to be A
