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

go for E, if so.

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.

in this case, the answer seems to be A

Option C fits the best according to me... 'through' is used correctly

You are missing a comma before the underlined part.

Absence of the comma made me choose B.
