Hello from MBA Admissions! I have not contributed to our blog in a while, and given that our final full-time MBA application submission deadline has passed I wanted to share some thoughts with all of you.
We are excited to be closing out a very strong full-time MBA admissions cycle with an increase in both the quantity and quality of full-time MBA applicants! We have received close to 2000 applications from over 56 different countries. We look forward to learning more about the applicants in our last round as we process and review our Round 4 applications. As a reminder, we will be releasing all of our full-time MBA Round 4 decisions by May 10. Continue reading →
How do you find the right business school for you?
Rodrigo Malta, Director of MBA Admissions, McCombs School of Business, says:
Research is key! An MBA requires the commitment of a lot of time and financial resources, so it is always best to find an MBA program that is the right fit for you. Back when I was an applicant, I used a spreadsheet with several attributes to evaluate MBA programs. The attributes ranged from cost, program length, location, post-MBA placement, class size, school size, entrance requirements, etc. A lot of this information is available on ranking websites. This spreadsheet really helped pare down my list of schools to a top 4-5. At that time, after narrowing down the list of schools, I started contacting the admissions team at these institutions to schedule class visits, etc. Only after visiting all schools, I finally decided on the school to pursue my MBA studies. Visiting the campus is key before applying and/or making the final selection for your MBA pursuit.
The Fall 2013 applications are now live for Texas MBA for Working Professionals and Executives programs. Further info and instructions can be found on the Admissions pages, which are listed below for each program:
