MBA+ Projects have started!
One of the main reasons I came to McCombs was all the extra programs that are offered to students. One of these programs is the Texas MBA+ Leadership Program. In this program you get to work on an actual project with an outside company. This company can be from a predefined list provided by UT, or you can source your own project with the company of your dreams. We had our first meeting this past week and I’m really stoked about this program!
If you could work for anyone, who would it be?
I ask this question to a lot of my friends, prospective students and second years. I think this is a really important question to answer and the MBA+ program can help. Considering one of my passions is photography, I reached out to Adobe. I’m now leading a team of six students working on a marketing project for this company. I think this is going to be a great experience, but I don’t think I would have had this opportunity at other schools. Even if you’re not sure where you want to be, this program gives you the chance to “test the water” if you want to see how it would be to work with a certain company or a new function.
I was surprised how open companies are to students. If you want to source a project it’s not that hard; you just need to reach out to them. If you need help with that process the staff at McCombs is great and they will help you every step of the way. If you have other questions about this program, want to see some of the companies we’ve worked with, and get more program details, feel free to check out the MBA+ Program website or email the Program Director, Deidra Stephens at email@example.com.
