This past weekend, the Full-Time Texas MBA program hosted their annual Women’s Forum at the McCombs School of Business here at UT-Austin. This is always an exciting McCombs event and this year’s attendance was strong! 83 potential MBAs had the opportunity to interact with McCombs faculty and staff, alumni, and current students during a number of information sessions and networking receptions, allowing them to learn more about all aspects of the program and begin to picture themselves as Texas MBAs.
“It was a wonderful and large group of women, who
were excited to learn about the Texas MBA program, the University of Texas at Austin, and Austin! There was animated discussion about the challenges of coming back to school, especially for women, and issues related to career switching. I enjoyed speaking to them and learning about their career goals and aspirations. This is a great group of prospective MBA students and I look forward to seeing many of them in the fall of next year.”

The 2015 Texas MBA Diversity Forum was also this month, on November 14th. McCombs hosted 88 attendees from all over the world and these future MBAs had the opportunity to get to know program staff, faculty, alumni, current students, and each other for a first-hand look at the Texas MBA program.
Highlights from this year included a “Why McCombs?” presentation from Assistant Dean, Tina Mabley, in which she discussed what makes McCombs and the city of Austin stand out, from innovative culture, to beautiful outdoor spaces and a thriving arts and music scene. Attendees also learned about our dynamic student life through interactions with members of McCombs student organizations.
If you were not able to attend our Women’s or Diversity Forums this year, check out some of the other events happening on campus this season. We hope to see you soon!
