Working Professional & Executive 2015 Women’s Forum Recap

Texas MBA Women's Forum - Welcome sign and table

The Texas MBA recently held its annual Women’s Forums for all Working Professional and Executive MBA Programs in Dallas, Houston, and Austin!

Texas MBA at Houston Women’s Forum, Career Presentation

These events give prospective women MBAs the opportunity to discover all aspects of the Texas MBA program and how they can unlock their potential and develop as business leaders. Women’s Forum attendees had the opportunity to hear an overview of the Texas MBA program and connect with women in the program to learn about their experiences.

A highlight of the event was a talk from premier professional development coaches, Valerie Savage.
Valerie is a seasoned executive with 30 years of financial, strategic, operational and investor relations experience as an executive and consultant for private and public companies. Her session at the Women’s Forum demonstrated how to identify and articulate unique credentials to help position professionals for a successful career.

Choosing to pursue an MBA presents unique challenges for women, especially working professionals. The Women’s Forums provided realistic insight into the program, life as an MBA, and opportunities for candid discussion with former and current students.

If you were not able to attend the Women’s Forum this year, check out some of the other events happening on campus. We hope to see you soon!

What Are Executive MBA Programs Looking For?

What is the ideal profile for someone trying to get into Exec MBA program?

Rodrigo Malta, Director of MBA Admissions, McCombs School of Business, says:

The answer to this question will vary by school, so it is always best to check with the programs you are applying to determine their entry requirements. EMBA programs offer the opportunity for mid-career professionals to enhance their ability to lead, gain top-management perspective, understand the economic, social and political forces driving business change, and gain command of core business fundamentals. Not a lot of schools offer both a Working Professional and an Executive MBA program format.  Many times, the key differences between these programs are the timing of classes (weekdays v. weekends) and work experience of those individuals in the program.  When evaluating Executive MBA programs, it is important to look at the class profile before applying but to also visit classes if possible to compare and contrast the classroom interaction between Working Professional and Executive MBA classes.  Additionally, it is important to ask if classes are taught by the same faculty members.

Texas MBAs Experience Brazil On Recent Global Trip

This is a guest post by Lauren Turner, a member of the Texas MBA at Dallas-Fort Worth class of 2013, who recently took part in a global trip to Brazil as part of the Texas MBA Program.

April 16, 2012

Finally, we got to start seeing the city of São Paulo! This morning we headed to the most popular cosmetic company in Brazil, Natura.  If there is a “Best Companies to Work For” in Brazil, I bet Natura is on the list. They had all kinds of amentities on the campus, including daycare for the employee’s children! It was also interesting to see how operations and lean six sigma worked at Natura as we toured the different cosmetic production areas in the facility.

Students at Natura

After visiting Natura, we enjoyed a city tour of São Paulo, which included visiting the Monument to the Bandeiras.

April 17, 2012

We started the day today learning about Unica, which is a company in the Sugarcane and Ethanol industry in Brazil. It was very interesting to hear another countries’ perspective on the global energy crisis.

And who could come to Brazil and not learn about soccer? We spent the afternoon visiting the owners of the Corinthians Soccer Club in São Paulo, who were really excited because they are building a new stadium for the club in preperation for the 2014 World Cup. After all the learning and touring, we had to find a place to enjoy the famous Brazilian Caipriniha…and the rooftop Skye Bar was the perfect solution, you could see the entire São Paulo sky line!

April 18, 2012

São Paulo was a very interesting place to visit, but finally arriving in Rio was amazing! We started the day by visiting one of the “new” 7 wonders of the world…a statue called Cristo Redentor or Christ the Reedemer.  It is on top of Corcovado mountain, where you can see the entire city of Rio.

Once we finished checking out the Cristo Redentor statue, we checked into our hotel, which is a 5 star hotel in Copacabana…not surprising, after seeing the rooftop bar and beach front view. I knew I would like the hotel when they served us Caipirinhas as we checked in!

GE Celma Aviation Engine FacilityThis morning we headed to Petropolis, where we toured GE Celma’s Aviation Engine Facility. The tour was followed up by a lunch at Lago Sul, where we were served every kind of meat imaginable…the lake, hills, and beautiful buildings surrounding the restaurant were not too bad either!

Next, we visited Petrobras, which is a large Oil and Gas Company in Brazil.  We had a free night tonight to explore the city of Rio, so we got enjoyed the local food and also explored some bars, where, of course, the only sports games playing on TV were soccer matches!

April 20, 2012

Our last official day as a group in the city of Rio started out by visiting BNDES, which is The Brazilian Development Bank. We then had a free afternoon to enjoy the city, and many of us enjoyed laying on the beach, and even joined the locals in some sand soccer.

The group farewell dinner was held at Rio Scenarium, which was a beautiful two story restaurant and bar with live samba music playing in the background.

April 21, 2012

Before we all flew back to the states, we tried to see as much of Rio as possible! There was a group that went to Sugar Loaf mountain to view the city.

And others took jeep tours through the slums in the city, which was a great way to learn about Brazilian poverty and to see what day to day life looked like.

Also, some decided to take their chance at hang gliding…incredible way to view the city of Rio!

Regardless of what activities were selected, I think it’s safe to say we definitely enjoyed our time in Brazil!
