If you’ve decided you want to apply to the MBA program at Texas McCombs– congratulations on making a fantastic decision! But, now what? One of the first application components that future students typically focus on is the required standardized test. It can be an intimidating first step. Our MBA program accepts both GRE and GMAT. How can you know which test is best for you?
First, the Admissions Committee doesn’t have a preference on which test you take. Our article on examining your graduate test options can give you a good overview of the basic differences between the tests.
We do not believe that one test is better at demonstrating your preparedness for business school than the other. But it is important to think about what exam is best for you as an individual. In some cases, there may be a good reason to consider taking the GMAT over the GRE, or vice versa.
Over the 2017-2018 admissions season, the Full-Time MBA at Texas McCombs received more than 2,000 applications from around the world. Helping create a motivated, diverse class tailored for individual successes that contribute to society in positive ways is what inspires our MBA admissions committee every day.
Each MBA class is the result of relationships built between MBA candidates and the Texas McCombs community through connecting with MBA admissions, attending MBA events, completing our application and visiting our campus at UT Austin, one of the most prestigious public universities in the world, in the heart of welcoming, vibrant Austin Texas.
We are looking forward to the next class of Texas McCombs MBA students this fall! Get a sneak peak at our Full-Time Class of 2020 below.
Texas McCombs MBA Admissions is traveling around the world this summer & fall to participate in various events around the world to meet you, share what makes McCombs such a unique place, and answer any questions you have about the application process.

The following was written by Stephanie Hobart, Texas McCombs MBA ’18.
London is a city known for its chilly, cloudy weather, warm pints of beer, and public transit via the the London Underground. As a city, it’s almost the complete opposite of Austin, where I chose to pursue my full-time MBA degree. So why would I go to London to spend my exchange semester at London Business School?
The Texas McCombs MBA highlights the need to think globally in business today and then provides an opportunity to explore another corner of the globe on an exchange program. I chose London Business School for my exchange program because I wanted the opportunity to not only live in one of the most diverse cities in the world, but also participate in an MBA program that has an almost 90% international student population. Regardless of language or familiarity with a city, moving to a new location can always be a challenge.

Three semesters of business school prepared me for meeting large groups of new people, engaging in classroom and networking conversations, and the change of scenery from Austin to London provided me the chance to learn about life in a European MBA program in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
