Don’t forget that on Saturday, March 24, we will be hosting Women’s Forums in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, and Austin for our Texas MBA for Working Professionals and Executives programs.

These events offer you the opportunity to discover how the Texas MBA Program can unlock your potential and help you develop as a business leader, whether you are looking to advance your current career or make a career change. Women’s Forum attendees will have the opportunity to hear an overview of the Texas MBA program, understand the value proposition of the Texas MBA, connect with current MBAs, alumni, faculty and staff, and experience what makes the Texas MBA special.

This is the third post in our Women of the EMBA series, celebrating the many strong and active women enrolled in the Texas Executive MBA program working to advance their education, build solid leadership skills and open themselves to new opportunities in the world of business. Each post will feature an interview with one of these women, focusing on what led her to the Texas Executive MBA program and highlighting her experience in the program thus far.

How long has it been since you were last taking classes? How does it feel?
9 years. It feels very different. I would not classify the current experience as a “class” but rather as a study period with the great help of our teachers and colleagues.
Why did you decide to pursue an MBA at this time? Were you always planning on coming back to school?
I always knew I would be back at some point. I missed the way my mind behaves when I’m studying and I believe the key to be a successful person in business is to balance the theory and practice. Personal reasons made the decision easier for this period of my life.
In just over a month, the full-time Texas MBA Program will be hosting its 2011 Women’s Forum—a unique, all-women event that offers attendees the exclusive opportunity to picture theirself as a Texas MBA and learn more about the advantages of receiving an MBA from the McCombs School of Business. The application for the event is now live, so apply early to guarantee your spot!
This year’s Women’s Forum will be held on November 10-11, and it will offer attendees the opportunity to meet many of our future female business leaders currently enrolled in the Texas MBA program, meet faculty and share alumni experiences. Additionally, you will gain knowledge about the admissions process, discover career opportunities and grasp the global experience of attaining a Texas MBA.
The McCombs community is comprised of strong and active women working to advance their education, build solid leadership skills and open themselves to new opportunities in the world of business. From a rich culture of outstanding female faculty and alumni to notable women professionals who speak on campus each year, Texas MBA women are mentored by those who have proven to make a difference in society.
More details and registration information are available on the Women’s Forum website.
We hope to see you there!
