A McCombs Favorite: Preview Weekend 2017
In February, the Texas MBA Program hosted Round 1 admitted students at our Preview Weekend event! Each year, students admitted to the Texas Full-Time MBA Program are invited to spend two days in the beautiful city of Austin, TX to learn about all of the different resources available to them at McCombs and to meet their future classmates. Thank you to everyone who attended this February.
Our second Preview Weekend takes place on April 21 – 22, 2017. All Round 2 admitted students will be invited to attend, along with Round 1 admits who were not be able to join us for the Preview Weekend in February. You can find more information and register for this event on the admitted student website. We are excited to host more of our admitted students in Austin & on-campus this April!
