A big part of your MBA journey begins after you graduate– You’ll move up in your industry, transition into a different industry, or leverage your strong McCombs network to establish your own business ventures.
At the Texas MBA Program, our Career Management & Employment Services teams are devoted to making sure that no matter where your career takes you next, you”ll be successful.
Your Texas MBA degree starts paying dividends immediately. In 2015, Forbes named us the 3rd-highest return on investment (ROI) among all public MBA programs in the U.S.
Our MBAs are in demand with employers and there is a great balance among different job functions to create a diverse culture among our graduates:
The Texas MBA Program puts a nice balance of students into consulting, operations, brand and product management, and finance. I think that very positively mimics the work environments that they are going into where, irrespective of what function you have, you are going to be working with all different areas of the company.
