The Ins & Outs of the Executive MBA Test Waiver

From Director of Texas Executive MBA Admissions, Sharon Barrett:

Hands down, this is the most common question I get from Executive MBA candidates:

So here’s the lowdown– First and foremost, the Executive MBA is the only Texas MBA program that accepts applicants’ petitions to waive the GMAT or GRE exam requirement. (Key words being “applicant” and “petition.”)  And everyone’s case is different, so there’s no recipe to follow, no checklist, and no guarantee that if you do certain things, you’ll get a waiver.

Applying to the Final Round of the Texas MBA Admissions Cycle

From Texas MBA Working Professional & Executive Program Admissions:

There’s an ice-breaker game often played at events called “Two Truths and a Lie,” where you make three statements about yourself, and others try to guess which statement is false.  We’ll modify that slightly here and call it “Two Truths and a Myth.”

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!
