The Texas MBA Program at the McCombs School of Business is located right in the middle of America’s most innovative city. As a top entrepreneurial MBA program, Texas MBA can offer many unique resources to prepare students for new business ventures. One of the best resources for aspiring entrepreneurs at McCombs is Texas Venture Labs.
Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs (TVL) is an initiative to accelerate startups in taking their innovations to market and help entrepreneurs become leaders in business. As a Texas MBA, you’ll have access to the many resources that TVL has to offer! From pairing up with local startups for a semester-long consulting project, to having the opportunity to compete in the annual Investment Competition, TVL will help you build the skills you need to turn your idea into a success story.
McCombs recognizes the value military veterans bring to our campus. Our community is one of support, collaboration, and dedication to prepare you for career success, which is why the Texas MBA is consistently a top-ranked program for military MBAs.
Transitioning from military life to civilian life can be challenging. An MBA degree can be a great resource for veterans to enhance their business skills and transition into a civilian role in the business community.
We Invite You to Learn More at the Texas MBA Military Forum!
The Texas MBA Military Forum offers future military MBAs the opportunity to meet many of the former military members currently enrolled in the Texas MBA Program, meet our top-rated faculty, and network with Texas MBA military alumni. Through this event, you’ll learn how to successfully transition from your military career to a top MBA program, as well as discover all of the resources available to you at The University of Texas at Austin.
The McCombs School of Business and The University of Texas at Austin offer many resources to aid in the transition into civilian life and returning to school full-time to earn your MBA. See below for some of resources available to vets enrolled at McCombs.
From the Texas Full-Time MBA Admissions Team:
So, you’ve submitted your application and after waiting anxiously for further news, you’ve received that coveted interview invitation. First of all, take time to pat yourself on the back to have made it to this stage of the process! Receiving an interview invitation means that the Texas MBA Admissions Committee is excited to learn more about you.
However, after a few excited minutes of celebration, some questions might start popping in your head. Should I book a trip to Austin? What interview format options are there? What sort of questions will I be asked and who conducts the interview? How do I prepare for the interview?
Like anything else, your MBA interview invitation is an opportunity. While some applicants may look forward to it, others may not exactly enjoy the anxiety. If you are a member of the latter group, look at it this way: this interview can be just the thing the Admissions Committee needs to stitch together the rest of your application elements with a genuine, prepared, and poised interview performance.
The interview affords one of the only formal opportunities for official face-to-face interaction during the application process. Seize it.
From our Working Professional MBA staff and students:
Working professional MBA programs provide an inherent challenge – how to manage the competing priorities of work, school, and a personal life. Many wouldn’t think of adding to that mix perhaps the ultimate challenge, caring for a new baby. Nevertheless, McCombs Working Professional MBA students have shown it can be done, with the right planning, prioritizing and support network.
“There’s never a ‘right’ time to have a baby,” says Denise Xue, Texas Evening MBA Class of 2017, a financial analyst at Intel who gave birth to her son Daniel in April of 2016, during her fourth semester in the program.
Having a baby while getting an MBA is certainly not easy, but I never regret one bit. You will be extremely busy, and feel challenged both physically and emotionally, but at the same time you will also feel proud of yourself for the things that you accomplished.”
Here is some advice from Denise and other recent parents for those contemplating parenthood in combination with their Texas MBA:
The Texas MBA Program is currently ranked #17 in the country by U.S. News & World Report, making McCombs the top business school in the thriving state of Texas. This past year, the Texas Full-Time MBA Program received more than 2,500 applications from around the world. We’re very excited to welcome the Class of 2019!
